Summary
Few people would contest that modern capitalism comes with major costs: it damages the environment, harms workers, and increases inequality, to name just a few. Yet we're told time and again that those are simply inevitable side effects of the constant need for profit and growth<U+0127> �and that while they may be regrettable, there's no other way. Christian Felber disagrees. In Change Everything, he lays out a wholly new vision for a humane economic model<U+0127> �the Economy for the Common Good, or ECG. Not just an idea, but a rapidly growing international movement, ECG is a practical, detailed blueprint for a new way of doing business, a people-centered approach that could sweep away austerity, support human (and humane) development, repair our damaged environment, and utterly reorient our relationship to work, money, and the purpose of both. Its vision is just short of breathtaking, but it remains grounded in reality, as evidenced by the fact that more than 1,700 companies around the world have already endorsed its principles. Nothing less than a call to re-examine all that we've ever been told about how economies work, Change Everything is a ringing manifesto for a new, better age.--
