way to transform the global economic system is to create
a Better World Industry to rival the huge infrastructure
that is in place for our culture of violence and profits-before-people.
Better World Industry will promote products and practices
that show that not only is creating a better world desirable,
but it can be profitable. Then, creating a better world
will become popular. Then, creating a better world will
become an accepted option and goal for individuals and
society. Once this happens, corporations will adopt
better world practices in order to win customers' business.
Eventually, all businesses will become better world
businesses or they won't be able to survive.
that currently promote a better world include "green"
products and services that promote the well being of
planet earth, as renewable energy alternatives.
BetterWorld Shopping Guide (BetterWorldShopper.org)
grades products and services in 75 categories based
on environmental and social responsibility. This pocket-sized
book is a valuable tool for helping to make every dollar
count for a better world. (Also Check out Co-Op America's
GreenPages.org for lots of "green businesses.")
Better World Industry includes companies like Working
Assets and Newman's Own which use profits to help create
a better world. If you are an entrepreneur or business
owner, help the Better World Movement to grow by offering
products and services that promote a more peaceful,
just and sustainable world, and let the world know that
you are helping to grow the better world movement.
Creating a Better World can be profitable. A Better
World Industry will transform the global economy.
