By Luigi Morelli

This book carries further what was brought in the previous book (Legends and Stories for a Compassionate America), from the present into the future. There is a thematic continuity between original Native American impulses (of the Iroquois in particular), the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and a twenty-first century impulse that strives to radically and peacefully transform American society.

America is at a crossroads. We can choose a culture of denial, a growing politics of secrecy and the continual erosion of individual rights; or we can open the doors to new possibilities. This is both a personal and a national choice, which we are continuously facing.

A new civil culture has emerged and grown progressively over the last sixty years. It is now gathering strength and visibility, offering America and the world something completely different from an economic globalization run amok. This movement is already creating new cultural values; promoting a fuller and participatory democracy that meets the needs of all; and fostering a sustainable economy. All elements of the vision add to each other, and form a new paradigm; they bring new meaning and possibilities to the American Dream.

Luigi Morelli is also the author of A Revolution of Hope: Spirituality, Culture and Social Change

By Stephen Taft
Ever since Mr. Olduvai and Mr. Rueul were introduced after graduating from different universities, they have shared a dual bond: respect for each other and dissatisfaction with the world around them. They see that the nation seems to be perpetually debating how to handle poverty, inequality, loss of personal freedom, and government debt. As years pass, supposed fixes come and go, but the problems remain. Yet the old friends still seek answers, and over the course of two days, they unravel the causes of economic problems and offer potential solutions. As they talk, they hash out the merit of simple laws governing access to land, the ability to say no, and the role of government, which together protect the nature of economic freedom. These basic laws allow capitalism to embrace and reward the demands of the entrepreneur, while also offering dignified alternatives for the less talented or uninspired —all without taxing a nickel of anyone’s income. Our economy has the potential to eliminate financial insecurity for every citizen and still be the strongest economic engine in the world. Find out how by joining the conversation in A True Free Market.

Economist Heinrich Anker argues that we should be working toward coevolution—or being of service to each other—which would promote growth for customers, employees, businesses, and society.

One way companies can do this is by focusing on shared value, which is a concept that would give them a competitive advantage by linking business activities with a service to society. The Value Balance in Business™ approach is a way for firms of all sizes and ownership structures to succeed. Learn how the approach works, and get proven strategies to help employees find more meaning in their everyday work. 

By restoring the spiritual dimension to economics and everyday business, you’ll be taking an important step into not just making business more profitable, but it will make a difference. 

Embark on a road that leads to lasting prosperity for businesses, employees, and customers by creating shared value and becoming Wealthier Together.
