Small change why business won't save the world by Michael Edwards( file )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,330 libraries worldwide
A new movement is afoot that promises to save the world by applying the magic of the market to the challenges of social change. Its supporters argue that using business principles to solve global problems is far more effective than more traditional approaches. What could be wrong with that? Almost everything, argues former Ford Foundation director Michael Edwards. In this hard-hitting, controversial expose, he marshals a wealth of evidence to reveal that in reality, a market approach hurts more than it helps. Real change will come when business acts more like civil society, not the other way
Inequality matters : the growing economic divide in America and its poisonous consequences ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 711 libraries worldwide
Leading American scholars and activists explore the question our leaders have been working overtime to ignore. Since the 1970s, the U.S. economy has been sending more and more of its rewards to fewer and fewer people. Once seen as a global exemplar of egalitarian and middle-class opportunity, America has become the most unequal of developed nations - a land where corporate leaders earn hundreds of times the pay of average workers, and the only population group growing faster than millionaires is the uninsured. Statistics aside, this quarter-century-long trend has changed the texture of American life in ways that threaten our deepest values. Drawing on the best and latest research, the contributors explore issues such as the real sotry the numbers tell about how America has changed; dimensions of inequality (education, health, and opportunity); causes of inequality - looking past the usual suspects of technology, trade, and immigration; the persistence of racial disparities; the erosion of democracy and community; and inequality as a moral and religious problem.A cautionary volume of essays by leading scholars and activists examines the pervasive consequences of economic inequality in America, drawing on current research to explore such issues as the causes and dimensions of inequality, the persistence of racial disparities, the erosion of democracy and community, and inequality.Not just a catalogue of inequality's ills, the book concludes with a plausible and hopeful policy path - beyond redistribution - to a more just and humane economy

Invisible capital how unseen forces shape entrepreneurial opportunity by Chris Rabb( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 138 libraries worldwide
Writer, consultant and speaker Chris Rabb coined the term "invisible capital" to represent the unseen forces that dramatically impact entrepreneurial viability when a good attitude, a great idea, and hard work simply aren't enough. In his book, Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity, Rabb puts forth concrete and effective ways entrepreneurs and their advocates can build and grow sustainable enterprises amid these unseen forces created by society's uneven playing field. By honoring democratic ideals, challenging assumptions, and reframing how success is defined, Ra

Trading up : win-win solutions to raise global living standards and ensure the success of American workers by David Callahan( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Americans are confused and anxious about trade and globalization. On the one hand, many voters fear for their jobs and living standards, worrying about rising competition from developing nations. On the other hand, many Americans see clear benefits from globalization, believe that the United States must engage in the global economy, and want poorer nations to develop. Trading Up offers a new framework for understanding and responding to this phenomenon--one that balances a commitment to markets and open trade with dramatic efforts to reduce inequities and insecurities.--Publisher description
