This book is also concerned with world economics, but it is approached from the viewpoint of ethics. It argues that the hubris of the present global market is destroying communities and wreaking irrevocable damage to the planet: we live in a modern version of the Midas myth. Justice in its broadest sense--fair shares for all--is eloquently held up as the prime virtue of human communities. Timothy Gorringe, Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Exeter, offers practical suggestions for an ethical transformation to replace the spiraling profit-driven economy with a steady-state economy that meets human needs, and encompasses the well-being of other species and the environment.
