Christian Felber says it is. Moreover, in Change Everything he shows us how. The Economy for the Common Good is not just an idea, but has already become a broad international movement with thousands of people, hundreds of companies, and dozens of communities and organizations participating, developing and implementing it. Published in English for the first time, this is a remarkable blueprint for change that will profoundly influence debates on reshaping our economy for the future.
"A timely and important new vision for the purpose of economic activity, moving away from the private accumulation of wealth and towards the common good. A must read for business leaders, economists, activists, civil servants and politicians if we are to have any chance of creating an economy that meets the needs of people and the planet."
--Duncan McCann, New Economics Foundation
"This book is required reading for anyone interested in a stronger and more equitable economy. . . . Essential."--Choice
"Felber and his associates have created 'The Economy for the Common Good, ' a utopian vision of society based on community values where altruism is rewarded and political and economic power returned to the people. In Change Everything Felber lays out a plan for this new society, based on the idea that 'all economic activity should serve the common good.' . . . Finishing it, I found myself wanting to live somewhere where the Economy for the Common Good applies, and eager to follow up this book with some action."
