  • An indispensable guide and call to action to take control of our economic power and hold corporations to a higher standard

    'A pragmatic and original roadmap to transform capitalism into a system that's more inclusive, sustainable, and just'Dr. Rajiv J. Shah, President of The Rockefeller Foundation

    CAPITALISM IS FAILING - AND SO ARE THE TOOL WE'RE RELYING ON TO FIX IT . . .


    Chevron boasts spending $50 million per year on renewable energy whilst it spends 200 times that on oil exploration.
    Goldman Sachs touts its 10,000 Women initiative but women earn 55% less than men do on average.

    By focusing on corporations rather than people, we've put our faith in brand-focused window-dressing. But why should we trust those responsible for our current crisis to fix it?

    WE NEED TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

    A blueprint for taking ownership of your economic power, authors NAME and NAME show us how we can trigger a fundamental shift away from an unethical, unfair, and destructive economy. Their investigation cuts through the tired dogma to reveal a hopeful truth: if we can make our corporations accountable, we can make capitalism both prosperous and good.

    WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE CAPITALISM; AS CONSUMERS, AS INVESTORS, AS EMPLOYEES, AS VOTERS.
