Growing the Green Economy
Foreword by Hunter Lovins
"Ethical Markets, both the television show and the book, is the nutritious and tasty food for the soul so desperately needed at the dawn of the 21st Century. Hazel Henderson is at once a searing critic, an eloquent teacher, and a witty forecaster. She shows what is working and what should be the hope of a progressive economy that honors the biosphere and all the people with whom we share it. It should be on the required reading list of all sustainability courses, along with her classic Politics of the Solar Age."

Triple-bottom-line best practices for twenty-first-century business.
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.
