Good Value

Stephen Green

How should we create wealth in societies, and why is it right and necessary to do so? What improves the lives of the largest number of people? And how do we, living in a globalised world caught in an age of financial and ecological turbulence, respond to the differing needs of individuals and institutions? In Good With Money Stephen Green reflects on how the human desires for exploration and exchange have led us into a globalised, urban world, and considers why it is that capitalism is the best system by which to improve material human wealth. As the world's financial order is in a state of flux, how do we align these drives, and capitalism, with our spiritual and psychological needs? Do businesses have a duty to society that goes beyond the creation of profit? And how can individuals combine their moral, spiritual and ethical selves with their everyday work? Encompassing history, politics, religion and economics, Good With Money offers new perspectives on how we can live in a richer, more dynamic world.
