"Our current economic system - which assumes endless growth and limitless potential wealth - flies in the face of the fact that the earth's life-support capacity is finite. The result is increasing destruction of the natural world and growing, sometimes lethal, tension between rich and poor. Peter G. Brown and Geoffrey Garver use the core Quaker principle of "right relationship" - respecting the integrity, resilience, and beauty of human and natural communities - as the foundation for a new economic model. Right Relationship poses five basic questions which propose new answers that combine an acute awareness of ecological limits with a fundamental focus on fairness and a concern with the spiritual, as well as material, well-being of the human race. And they outline what each of us can do to enable life's commonwealth."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
