Product description

An indispensable guide and call to action to take control of our economic power and hold corporations to a higher standard

'A pragmatic and original roadmap to transform capitalism into a system that's more inclusive, sustainable, and just'Dr. Rajiv J. Shah, President of The Rockefeller Foundation
____________

CAPITALISM IS FAILING - AND SO ARE THE TOOL WE'RE RELYING ON TO FIX IT . . .

Chevron boasts spending $50 million per year on renewable energy whilst it spends 200 times that on oil exploration.
Goldman Sachs touts its 10,000 Women initiative but women earn 55% less than men do on average.

By focusing on corporations rather than people, we've put our faith in brand-focused window-dressing. But why should we trust those responsible for our current crisis to fix it?

WE NEED TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

A blueprint for taking ownership of your economic power, authors NAME and NAME show us how we can trigger a fundamental shift away from an unethical, unfair, and destructive economy. Their investigation cuts through the tired dogma to reveal a hopeful truth: if we can make our corporations accountable, we can make capitalism both prosperous and good.

WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE CAPITALISM; AS CONSUMERS, AS INVESTORS, AS EMPLOYEES, AS VOTERS.

'Uses a combination of great stories and thoughtful analysis to suggest that we must find a way to change the purpose of our corporations if we are to build a society that works for all of us' Rebecca M. Henderson, John & Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard University
'Fresh, balanced, highly readable and deeply informed' John Pepper, former Chairman and CEO of P&G
