"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."--BOOK JACKET

Our planet's future is too often described in terms of doom and despair. However, there is another perspective that is not only positive, but credible, too. The book describes a planet that is green, fair, connected, and collaborative. Based on extensive research, leading environmentalist Jonathon Porritt reveals how we can achieve a genuinely sustainable world by 2050 if we act immediately. Part history, part narrative, the book describes the key events, technological breakthroughs, and lifestyle revolutions that could transform our planet, covering topics as wide-ranging as 3D printing, personal genomics, urban agriculture, and the digital landscape. The book's innovative ideas are brought to life with futuristic photographs, infographics, and hand-drawn sketches, while an extensive index provides the tools and tips needed to prepare for what's ahead

"The world is simultaneously approaching a number of crises; from climate change, to global inequity, unbalanced population growth, resource shortage and terrorism. Jonathan Porritt, in this well-argued book, recognises the role that globalism plays as both part of the problem and as an essential part of the solution. He addresses different possible modes of globalism and challenges the world's leaders to reform the way business as we know it is done. A sequel to his 2007 book Capitalism as if the World Matters, Globalism and Regionalism should be read by everyone who has an interest in the future of our planet."--Jacket
