Right Relationship

Building a Whole Earth Economy


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