Product Overview

"As we humans puzzle our way to an understanding of how to live sustainably within Earth's carrying capacity, Marvin Brown has provided a crucial piece of the puzzle. Civilizing the Economy is an important book because it expresses a keystone idea of the new economic system that must evolve if our species is to survive and live up to its potential."-Ray Anderson, Founder and Chairman, Interface, Inc.

"In this profound and courageous book, Marvin Brown asks the question that moral philosophers and political economists have pondered since Socrates: What is a just society? He limms a bold, fresh and scholary vision of a new, 'civilized' economic order with a fairer distribution of income, wealth, and goods."-James O'Toole, Daniels Distinguished Professor of Business Ethics, university of Denver

"In the current debate about the future of capitalism, Marvin Brown provides essential benchmarks for moving toward a civilized economy. This book is a must-read in redefining capitalism."-Georges Enderle, John Ryan Jr. Professor of International Business Ethics, Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame

"Marvin Brown offers a creative new perspective on the economy. This creative approach will stimulate, provoke, and hopefully, move forward the conversation about what the economy should look like in the future."-Sandra Waddock, Galligan Chair of Strategy, Boston College
