A Finer Future had its genesis as a request from The Club of Rome to answer the vital question whether it is possible for humanity to avoid total system collapse
Hunter Lovins has taken the results of that report and turned it into a book to rally communities, companies, and countries to create a world that works for 100% of humanity
Formed in 1968, the Club of Rome comprises around 100 notable scientists, economists, businessmen, high-level civil servants, and former heads of state from around the world. The Club published the well-known book Limits to Growth, which 30 million copies in 30 languages have been sold
The research shows that the potential for collapse is real, but we can avoid it with a blend of entrepreneurialism, technology, and good policy
A Finer Future demonstrates how to transform finance, corporations, agriculture, energy, and the nature of how we work
It describes how to enhance well-being among the many and restore trust and social capital by addressing income inequality and environmental destruction.
With references and case studies of solutions it outlines the principles of a regenerative economy and details the policies needed to achieve it.
