An Alternative Future

Author: Hazel Henderson

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Findaway

Published: 01/18/1991

Genre: Political Science - Government - Comparative

Synopsis

In this radical, visionary look at our possibilities for a sustainable future, Hazel Henderson discusses the “globalization” of human affairs, and proposes new ways of evaluating and improving a city or nation’s quality of life. We need an alternative, she explains, to such indicators as the GNP, which values war weapons but not environmental or human resources, an alternative to violence as a solution to political problems, and “a new game where the most ethical companies and the most socially responsible people and governments get a chance to win.”
