Contents:
Global economic warfare versus sustainable human development: flash points, trends, and transitions -- Juggernaut globalism and the bankruptcy of economics -- The technology trap -- The jobless productivity trap -- Government by mediocracy and the attention economy -- Grassroots globalism -- Rethinking human development and the time of our lives -- Cultural DNA codes and biodiversity: the real wealth of nations -- Information: the world's real currency isn't scarce -- Redefining wealth and progress: the new indicators -- Perfecting democracy's tools -- New markets and new commons: the cooperative advantage -- Agreeing on rules and social innovations for our common future.
Summary: World-renowned futurist Hazel Henderson extends her twenty-five years of work in economics to examine the havoc the current economic system is creating at the global level. Markets are now spreading worldwide - a spread which is often equated with the hope of democracy spreading along with it. But markets still run on old textbook models that ignore social and environmental costs - leading to a new kind of warfare: global economic warfare. Building a Win-Win World demonstrates how the global economy is unsustainable because of its negative effects on employees, families, communities, and the ecosystem. Henderson shows how win-win strategies can become the norm at every level when people see the true current and future costs of short-sighted, narrow economic policies.
