9781137444172: Fusion Economics: How Pragmatism is Changing the World

The current international financial system has created a huge gap between the wealthy and the rest. Grounded and straightforward in his approach, Brahm calls for a turn away from economic systems dangerously steeped in ideology and stymied by politics, outlining a new global consensus based on pragmatism, common sense, and grass-roots realities.

Review :

"Fusion Economics is an extraordinary interweaving of personal experience and far-sighted economic and ecological thinking which may very well hold the key to China's future." - John Simpson, Word Affairs Editor, BBC News

"Brahm is a rare combination of world class economist and hands-on entrepreneur. A down-to-earth pragmatist, he has been economic advisor to major Asian heads of government. Fusion Economics will contribute greatly to revitalizing sagging economies." - John Naisbitt, author of Megatrends

"With Fusion Economics, Brahm takes on an impossible task - and succeeds. He weaves the profanity of modern economics into a tangible narrative which perfectly describes our social-ecological auto-destruct and then forges not only a bypass but an entire heart-transplant. People and planet should salute this noble offering." - Sacha Stone, Founder of Humanitad and the New Earth Project

"Brahm does not simply offer a new economic model or provide fast answers to the dilemma of our global economic and environmental crisis. His story helps us look at problems differently as part of an interconnected matrix, inspiring us to find the answers ourselves in each of our own communities and cultures. It is about using indigenous knowledge, practical solutions not theory, community empowerment and the power of diversified localization, concepts clearly outlined in this book" - Dr. Supachai Panitchpakdi, Secretary General of UNCTAD from 2005-2013 and former WTO Director

"Laurence Brahm's Fusion Economics presents his innovative and systemic analysis of the main issues that are shaping the global future and what is needed to deal with them. All of us who share these concerns must also join in support of the peaceful revolution for which this book is such a comprehensive and enlightening guide." - Maurice Strong, Canadian UN icon, founder of the 1992 Earth Summit

'Brahm is one of those unsung heroes who was changing the world for the better, influencing various governments long before ecological economics and social enterprise became fashionable. His proven focus on community development and evolutionary blends of state planning and market incentives is precisely what we need. This is a practical and spiritual book that should be required reading among those intent on creating collaborative economies and social enterprises.' - Robert Steele, CEO, Earth Intelligence Network, author of The Open-Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust

Description du livre Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. État : New. Hardcover. 272 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Everyone knows something is wrong. Over forty percent of the worlds population lives in poverty. Our planets resources are diminishing at frightening rates. The international financial system is broken and only serves to exacerbate the gap between the wealthy and the rest. We are at a crucial tipping point. Is there a way out of this mess In Fusion Economics, Laurence Brahm presents an alternative way to the economic practices and thinking that brought us to this point. Holistic, yet grounded and straightforward, this revolutionary book calls for a turn away from an economic system dangerously steeped in ideology, stymied by politics, and prone to fomenting violence. As he examines where things went wrong, Brahm outlines a new global consensus based on pragmatism, common sense, and grass-roots realities that requires a profound change in values and different measurements of success. Drawing on his experience overseeing Chinas transformation from socialism to market economy and its current Green Growth National Policy, Brahm suggests a synergistic integration of western and eastern economic systems. He takes readers on a global journey, traveling with them to Chinas secretive halls of power where Brahm helps to convert rusty debt-ridden state enterprises into international corporations, the central banks of Vietnam and Laos, grass-roots social enterprises in the Himalayas, micro-finance schemes in Bangladesh, the secluded kingdom of Bhutan where Gross National Happiness is invented, massive rallies in Africa calling for a new approach to development that shocks multilateral institutions, indignant movements in Spain and Russia and the protests at Occupy Wall Street. Fusion Economics demonstrates how a clever combination of market planning, localized diversification, green energy, and finance for small and medium sized community enterprises can restructure our financial architecture into a more sustainable model. Fusion Economics is a must-read for anyone who wants to be on the vanguard of change to build a more adaptive, organic, and inclusive future. At once pragmatic and progressive, it holds the promise of a new economic reality with a heart, a mind and a soul. This item ships from multiple locations.
