Summary: Putting a new paradigm to work
Stuart Harts' book is groundbreaking. It discusses on issues united under the umbrella term 'sustainability'. Hart describes those issues in a merciless way, as the gravity of the situation warrants. But he does not lead us into a pessimistic picture of doom. On the contrary, he shows avenues of avenues of hope. In other words, there are things to do to deal with the pressing problems facing the planet and its population.
Those processes towards solutions had better dovetail with the ways in which apparently people apparently satisfy their economic and social interests. Those ways, which could be brought together as 'capitalism', are not without problems of their own; problems which Hart discusses. He also sees the great potential towards improvement hidden within the dynamic of capitalism and makes us contemplate on ways of using that potential in dealing with the challenges of the planet.
Special mention has to be given to Harts' discussion of paradigms he connects with, especially Elkingtons' Triple Bottom Line and Prahalads' Bottom of the Pyramid; approaches which lie at the basis of this book, although Hart goes further.
The encompassing and at the same time practical approach in this book make it valuable reading to all people engaged in business and government, although not only to them.
