ECONOMICS takes an insightful look at the modern economic system and its purported benefit to global society. It denounces the myths that everything has a price tag, purchasing things will bring people happiness, and that wealth, happiness, and fulfillment are inseparable from money. It asserts that focusing on human and natural capital can truly benefit society and suggests that the values of life outweigh financial values. Featured are David Korten and Maude Barlow, along with Paul Hawken, Amory and Hunter Lovins and the ideas presented in their book Natural Capitalism.
