Building A Whole Earth Economy
BY PETER BROWN AND GEOFFREY GARVER
What is right relationship? A thing is right when it preserves the integrity, resilience, & beauty of the commonwealth of life and wrong when it does otherwise. Unlimited growth & wealth are seen as "natural law" and nothing can be done to alter this - even if it means damaging the Earth's ecological & social systems. We face a moral choice: bring the economy into right relationship with the planet & its inhabitants, or suffer the consequences - the increasing destruction of Earth's life support systems & social structures. This book presents a proposal for bringing our world into alignment. A project of the Quaker Institute for the Future.
