“Right Relationships” and Economic Systems


Here is an excellent book on the relationship between faith, values and economic systems:  Right Relationship: Building a Whole Earth Economy, by Peter G. Brown et al, 2009.  Developed by a team of Quaker scholars, it offers a holistic perspective on our current economic and political system and how a profound change in that system is required in the interest of both humanity and the biosphere.

This timely book is very readable and concise, yet gets right to the point.  I recommend it as a foundational work for those who wish to research this area and then advocate for change.  Several in our study-advocacy group have read – or are reading – it.

Here is my more complete presentation document on this excellent, challenging and yet inspiring book:

Retired former engineer and (later) clinical social worker. Married, with two adult children. Long time student of spirituality and "A Course in Miracles." Presently alarmed at how the U.S. economic system, with all of its strengths, is poisoning our society, world economic fairness and the biosphere upon which we rely for physical life itself. I have thus with others in our community formed an economic reform study-advocacy group.
