HOW TO THRIVE IN THE NEXT ECONOMY: DESIGNING TOMORROW'S WORLD TODAY. John Thackara. Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2015. Copyright 2016. 192 pp. 25 x 17 cm. LC 2015-938380 ISBN 9780500518083 In English.
Publisher's description: Drawing on an inspiring range of examples, from a temple-led water management system in Bali that dates back hundreds of years to an innovative e-bike collective in Vienna, Thackara shows that below the radar of the mainstream media there are global communities creating a replacement economy one that nurtures the earth and its inhabitants rather than jeopardizing its future from the ground up. Each chapter is devoted to a concern all humans share land and water management, housing, what we eat, what we wear, our health, how and why we travel and demonstrates that it is possible to live a rich and fulfilling life based on stewardship rather than exploitation of the natural environment.
