Growing the Green Economy
Foreword by Hunter Lovins
"Hazel Henderson's new book points to fundamental equations all of us—as leaders and strategists operating in every walk of life—must address as central to the creation of a healthy future for humankind. More than just an outstanding contribution to a deeper understanding of social and ecological responsibility, this book is a roadmap for strategists. If we, as business and public leaders, are to design a better future for all, while also ensuring the success of our enterprises and our countries, we must understand the contours of the 'next industrial revolution.' This provocative book helps us explore innovative pathways toward a future that could be profoundly different from the world of contradictions we have built in the last several hundred years. Here, Hazel is at her best ever. She expresses a depth of wisdom that only comes from close contact with the deepest levels of global reality and the subtle games that are played therein."

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.
