In this fresh, politically charged analysis, Jonathon Porritt addresses the most pressing question of the 21st century: can capitalism, as the only real economic game in town, be retooled to deliver a sustainable future? Drawing on the latest research, Porritt argues that it can and it must be, and he lays out the framework for a new 'sustainable capitalism' that cuts across the political divides in offering a future of sustainable prosperity, equity and ecosystem integrity."@en ;
