"Hazel, a longtime Fellow of the World Business Academy, has enjoyed a career that had already won her a legion of followers who respect and honor her enormous intelligence, insight, foresight and incredible moral balance. I often refer to this legendary woman as the 'Mother' of Socially Responsible Investing for her seminal work over four decades in developing the concepts for SRI and suggesting practical, workable economic structures which would create the economic playing field for SRI to emerge. Yet, her work with Ethical Markets just now emerging in the form of this incredible book and companion DVD series is, I believe, the crowning achievement of a remarkably illustrious professional life. What Hazel has given us with Ethical Markets is a series of tightly focused and integrated core impressions of the rapidly world of change we find ourselves in, fused to a core understanding of the essential elements of a new, conscious, economic system. Hazel is laying out the 'win-win' economics of abundance that shows us how to use our business skills to create a society of abundance from the wreckage of six decades of materialistic excess which have left the poor to get poorer, the middle class to sink, civil strife to be heightened, a global race for scarce resources which is fueling a religious clash of fundamentalists from all sides, and a pervasive sense of 'something is wrong.' In it's place, Hazel is providing an integrated schema of thought which comprehensively addresses all the 'first things' we need to do next for society to advance to the next level of human consciousness. Equally important for the business community, she has laid out a roadmap for how to become one of the 'sunrise' companies of the next epoch."

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.
Ethical Markets is the ultimate sourcebook on today's thriving green economy.
