Rebalancing the Economy, edited by Christopher Brook and Miriam Kennet
Green Economics Institute Publishing House, UK, 2014
The current generations are at a turning point. Wealth inequality is growing
all over the world. This is leading to social unrest and increasing levels
of unhappiness in society. This is leading to a decline in social capital.
Rebalancing the Economy is needed to readdress these issues. No longer can
we measure the success of governments and countries first by gdp and only
then think about social and environmental effects. We need to measure
success not by our economic activity but also our well-being and that of the
environment. If companies, people and governments are measured by new
yardsticks then growth, wealth and profits will not be the priority. This
book starts to restore a more healthy balance in our economy.
