Capitalism: As If the World Matters

by

Capitalism: As If the World Matters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When first published in 2005, Capitalism as if the World Matters, by one of the leading eco-warriors of our time, shocked both a generation of environmentalists and a generation of business people by brushing aside their petty squabbles and artificial battle lines with a powerful argument that the only way to save the world from fuel shortages, climate change and environmental catastrophe is to embrace a new type of capitalism, and to do it quickly. In this substantially revised and updated edition, Porritt extends his powerful and controversial argument and answers his critics by providing fresh evidence and suggests new actions in a tightly argued and highly accessible book. New material includes in-depth coverage of the United States and the politics of climate change, the state of environmental debate and the massive upsurge in religious engagement with climate and the environment. Fresh case studies include the role of huge US corporations such as Walmart and General Electric in our sustainable capitalist future. Porritt also looks in-depth at China and the global impact this economic giant may have as it grows into the most environmentally damaging-or perhaps the first sustainable-superpower of the 21st century. This is a must read for all readers with a stake in the future of the world from business executives to environmental activists and community leaders to students to the very politicians with their hands on the levers of power.
