Beyond Poverty and Affluence makes an urgent appeal for a bold new economic practice. In the face of distressing societal realities - poverty, pollution and environmental degradation, ongoing losses in both the quantity and the quality of work - eminent Dutch economists Bob Goudzwaard and Harry de Lange argue that the foundations of our local, national, and international economic order need renewal, and they provide a provocative twelve-step program for economic recovery based on an "economy of care" for the earth and its people.
