Growing the Green Economy
Foreword by Hunter Lovins
"Once again, it takes Hazel Henderson to reveal the truth the mass media ignores: this time that local and global economies are steadily shifting their goals and practices toward ethics, human wellbeing and sustainability. As socially and environmentally responsible investment grows, often pushed by civic action and with women playing ever more significant roles, we are steadily gaining ground in clean renewable energies, recycling, truly healthy food and wellness production. Even the largest corporations can no longer pursue profit for its own sake as they discover the economic advantage of responsibility to planet and people. If your local TV stations are not yet showing Henderson's inspiring Ethical Markets TV series, this book will make you demand they do!"

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