About this book

Screwing Mother Nature for Profit is a wake-up call to acknowledge, and heal, the harm that corporate greed is wreaking on our planet. Overpopulation, hunger, pollution, climate change: the damage is all around us. How can we live in harmony with each other and with nature? For answers, Elaine Smitha turns to Mother Nature herself, explaining how her principles of cooperative competition can set corporations and governments on a path of conscious, sustainable growth. Drawing on concepts from Henry Ford's innovative production line to the findings of the 'new biology', she reveals a startling correlation between businesses and living systems and then uses this as the basis for a model of leadership oriented towards benefits much bigger than cash flow
