To be successful, a nation must have a sustainable economy—something the United States of America does not have in place.
James A. George and James A. Rodger suggest attributes for a new economic model that advocates sustainable capitalism. The model embraces the Genuine Progress Indicator and triple bottom-line accounting.
The authors explore important topics, including:
causes of the global economic crisis during the presidency of George W. Bush;
insights on how President Donald Trump’s administration is approaching economic problems;
ways all citizens can work together to ensure we meet our optimum potential; and
strategies to achieve balance among economic, social, and environmental needs.
While most people think that sustainable economics is all about climate change, the authors take a much broader view, noting that without economic security, there can be no military security and no homeland security.
America has enjoyed prosperity, but too many citizens continue to live in poverty. We can all earn a better return on our national resources by educating ourselves and Regenerating America with Sustainable Economics.
