In 2008 we watched as trillions of dollars vanished before our eyes, enveloped in the crash and burn of Wall Street’s bottom line. As working Americans and retirees awake from the aftermath, we’re searching for answers and alternatives to the reckless loans and dicey short-term bets that ravaged our savings and retirement assets. Thomas Croft, an international expert on innovative capital strategies and jobs-oriented economic revitalization policies, makes the case that there are strategic and socially responsible investment paths to rebuilding our economy and infrastructure, reinvigorating our cities, and creating the highly-anticipated green jobs of the future.

Because People Matter

Our economy is focused on growth and profit. In any given business, success is measured by the flow of money, not the interest of the people involved. In Because People Matter, author Jurriaan Kamp tells us why there are better alternatives. Kamp argues that the world economy is not only based on money, but on human choices as well. It is those choices that can promote the change necessary to transform our current crisis into a healthier economy that serves everyone.
