Books page, Ecology of Commerce

16Jun08

I have added a new Books page, and I’m opening the floor with an excellent book by Paul Hawken, The Ecology of Commerce. You can read a full review on the Books page, but here is one from the Editor-In-Chief of Inc. magazine, that does a better job:

This book, like the vision of capitalism it describes, is gentle, healing, restorative, and quietly eloquent. It will not make you richer, smarter, or more charismatic. It will merely challenge you to reexamine everything you believe about business as it is currently practiced, how we create meaning in our lives, and the fabric of the legacy we are weaving for our children. The Ecology of Commerce is nothing less than an economic and cultural masterpiece

I’ll also add a Films page soon, with reviews and links to relevant documentaries and movies.


Did you know?

In 2010, there will be 4200km of new highways in and around Shanghai, China that didn't exist in 2000. Varese, a town in Northern Italy, runs on 100% renewable power. The town uses a mix of wind, solar and small-scale hydropower. The town has reaped benefits from the energy network through added jobs, and an additional 350,000 euros [US $514,000] in revenues that are handed over to the council each year.
