The range of topics discussed is broad, from questions of economics and government policy, corporate and individual responsibility to how voluntary organisations can ensure that their money is used wisely. Issues raised include: does the way we use money betray the next generation? Is dishonesty within our financial systems making it too difficult for consumers to make informed decisions? Are we wasting money on good intentions that do not match real need? How can individuals, foundations and others with social concerns ensure that all their assets are used effectively? The book concludes with suggested actions for government, business, financial institutions, voluntary organisations and individuals. Anyone concerned with issues of finance and social justice will want to read this book.
