Zijn gedachtegoed heeft diepgaand effect gehad op vele terreinen, onder andere economie, geneeskunde en politiek. Ons feilbare denken brengt al die jaren onderzoek en wetenschap in één boek samen, en werd wereldwijd een bestseller.

Thomas Piketty, Le capital au XXIe siècle

La répartition des richesses est l’une des questions les plus débattues aujourd’hui. Pour les uns, les inégalités n’en finiraient pas de se creuser dans un monde toujours plus injuste. Pour les autres, on assisterait à une réduction naturelle des écarts et toute intervention risquerait de perturber cette tendance harmonieuse. Mais que sait-on vraiment de l’évolution des inégalités sur le long terme ? En réalité, les analyses économiques supposées nous éclairer se fondent plus souvent sur des spéculations théoriques que sur des faits établis.

Lietaer & Dunne, Rethinking Money

Lietaer & Dunne, Rethinking Money

Rethinking Money points out that there is a way, in fact a thousand ways, to stop our current juggernaut towards global self-destruction. There is a system of solutions already in place in localities throughout the world where terrible problems have existed. The changes came about, not through the redistribution of wealth, increased conventional taxation, bond measures or enlightened self-interest from corporate entities, but rather, by people simply rethinking the concept of money. With that restructuring, everything changed.

Michael Braungart & William McDonough, Cradle to Cradle

Michael Braungart & William McDonough, Cradle to Cradle

Nowadays, most of us recycle. But what about industry, where the real damage is done? Its limited, if well-intentioned, approach maintains the one-way, ‘cradle to grave’ manufacturing model of the Industrial Revolution, the very model that creates immense amounts of waste and pollution in the first place. What the planet needs is a major rethink; a new approach which directly combats the problem rather than slowly perpetuating it. And the planet needs it right now.
An exciting, simple, groundbreaking new vision, Cradle to Cradle offers this approach. With clear, accessible — even humorous — arguments, celebrated chemist Michael Braungart and inspirational architect William McDonough challenge the notion that human industry must damage the world. Instead, they look to nature and find a production system which mimics nature’s model to our commercial and environmental advantage, a system in which waste equals food. This book’s theories will shape our future, and this updated edition is essential reading: a bold, practical and overwhelmingly positive manifesto for our planet’s prosperous future.

Tim Jackson, Welvaart zonder groei

Professor Tim Jackson stelt de noodzaak van economische groei ter discussie én wat het betekent welvarend te zijn. Hij biedt ons alternatieven om vol aan het leven deel te nemen zonder een beroep te hoeven doen op een onhoudbare accumulatie van materiële dingen. Hij biedt ons een perspectief op een transitie naar een ecologisch geletterde macro-economie, een verzoening van een goed leven met een eindige planeet.
