This is a brilliant work. It's clear to anyone that we're living through a rapidly changing world, but it's awfully hard to make sense of it all sometimes. That's exactly what Julie Hudson and Paul Donovan, two leading experts in the field, have done with their new book. Without any polemic, the authors carefully document and analyze the connection between the "twin credit crunches" (financial and environmental)to help us see where we've been and where we may be heading. As the authors say, "the consequences of the combined effects of the twin credit crunches cannot be ignored". This is a must-read for all of us - Howard Sherman, Executive Director, GMI.

An intelligent, well thought out book that made me question the structure of our economy. I hope we learn some lessons from the financial crisis so that we don't mess up the environment beyond repair!
