'Philip Sadler's latest book focuses on the next big global shift from scarcity to abundance - the 'post-scarcity economy' - and its critical implications for sustainability of the planet and relief of poverty. He pulls no punches in demonstrating that so few multinational corporations, and the economists who advise them, have pursued a strategy of 'doing well by doing good'. He highlights how the economics of abundance and sustainability are in increasing conflict, in such areas as climate change, food and water shortages, and human rights. Sadler provides an excellent historical perspective coupled with a deep and thoughtful analysis of future economic trends. His challenging book should be read by all those who genuinely care about every aspect of sustainability and believe that the market cannot be relied upon to provide the planet with a safe landing.' - Professor Michael Osbaldeston, Emeritus Professor, Cranfield University School of Management, UK 'Philip Sadler excels at combining foresight with hindsight. He makes sense of all the important changes around us. He takes us into important new territory and challenges us to think systemically and laterally about the shift from scarcity to abundance.' - Mark Goyder, Founder Director, Tomorrow's Company
