Growing the Green Economy
Foreword by Hunter Lovins
"Another economic world is here, and Hazel Henderson is its John the Baptist and Tom Paine, its chronicler and unabashed cheerleader. Read this thrilling and lucid book about the transformation of life-destroying economics into a healing force that turns daily financial transactions into net producers of the common good. Hazel's writing is clear and inspiring; the picture she paints so plausible and fact-based that optimism about the future is the natural response."

With insight, clarity, warmth, and enthusiasm Hazel Henderson announces the mature presence of the green economy. Mainstream media and big business interests have sidelined its emergence and evolution to preserve the status quo.
Throughout Ethical Markets Henderson weaves statistics and analysis with profiles of entrepreneurs, environmentalists, scientists, and professionals. Based on interviews conducted on her longstanding public television series, these profiles celebrate those who have led the highly successful growth of green businesses around the world.
