Creating an Economy for the Common Good
Distributed for Zed Books
Christian Felber disagrees. In Change Everything, he lays out a wholly new vision for a humane economic model—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.
