About this book

Over the last three decades the world economy has grown strongly on the back of 'globalization' supported by the policies of free-trade, open markets and privatisation. Support has also grown for the concept of 'sustainability', meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. But as the Earth's systems come under increasing strain, the inherent conflict between sustainability and globalization has been exposed. This book examines the shift in thinking required to reconcile these two important areas of policy.

Media reviews
'This excellent book provides a unique perspective on sustainability and globalisation, two subjects which are usually viewed as inherently contradictory. The author argues convincingly that the two can be reconciled if we are willing to introduce some fundamental changes in the way we run our economy and society. He provides some powerful and bold insights into how to achieve this.' - Professor Emilio Herbolzheimer, Henley Business School
