9780137042326: Capitalism at the Crossroads: Next Generation Business Strategies for a Post-Crisis World (3rd Edition)

Today’s era of economic crisis has sent a powerful message: The age of "mercenary" capitalism is ending. We must finally embark on a new age of sustainable, stakeholder-based capitalism. While enlightened executives and policymakers understand the critical need for change, few have tangible plans for making it happen. In Capitalism at the Crossroads: Next Generation Business Strategies for a Post-Crisis World, Third Edition, Stuart L. Hart presents new strategies for identifying sustainable products, technologies, and business models that will drive urgently needed growth and help solve social and environmental problems at the same time.

 

Drawing on his experience consulting with top companies and NGOs worldwide, Hart shows how to craft your optimal sustainability strategy and overcome the limitations of traditional "greening" approaches. In this edition, he presents new and updated case studies from the United States and around the world, demonstrating what’s working and what isn’t. He also guides business leaders in building an organizational "infrastructure for sustainability"--one that can survive budgeting and boardrooms, recharging innovation and growth throughout your enterprise. Discover:

 

·         The new business case for pursuing sustainable capitalism

·         Sustainability strategies that go far beyond environmental sensitivity

·         How to fully embed your enterprise in the local context--and why you should

·         Tactics for making long-term sustainability work in a short-term world

From the Back Cover:

"The central message of Stuart Hart's book is that global business needs to be caring and be committed to preserving the globe's ecological integrity. The ongoing economic slowdown brought about by rampant capitalism, the lessons from which this new edition of the book factors in, has only served to emphasize the urgency for business to adopt the radical transformation of strategy that Stuart has been advocating."-RATAN TATA, Chairman, Tata Group "A few books change the way you think. Very few change the way you act. Stuart Hart's writings have served as a practical guide, a system of road signs that put new order into the complex business of becoming sustainable. We're learning that we can advance in a meaningful, exciting, and beneficial way. We fully expect that his ideas are guideposts that will mark Dow Corning's road to sustainability leadership."-STEPHANIE BURNS, Ph.D., Chairman, CEO, and President, Dow Corning Corporation ""Capitalism at the Crossroads" rightly points to capitalism as the most powerful and creative force we have for solving global problems. It is a welcome antidote to widespread ignorance about capitalism as a force for good."-JOHN MACKEY, CEO, Whole Foods Market, and coauthor, "Be the Solution" "I hope this book will be able to influence the thought processes of corporations and motivate them to adapt to forthcoming business realities for the sake of their own long-term existence. Besides business leaders, this is a thought-provoking book for the readers who are looking for solutions to capitalism's problems."-MUHAMMAD YUNUS, Founder and Managing Director, Grameen Bank, Bangladesh, and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize recipient ..."a pioneering roadmap to responsible corporate growth."-CLAYTON CHRISTENSEN, Professor, Harvard Business School, and New York Times best-selling author, "The Innovator's Dilemma" Reinventing Capitalism and Companies for a Radically New World Today's era of economic crisis has sent a powerful message: The age of "mercenary" capitalism is ending.
