Review quote

"The Real Wealth of Nations gives us a template for the better world that we have been
so urgently seeking. As practical as it is hopeful, this brilliant book shows how we can
build economic systems that meet both our material and spiritual needs. It illuminates
the way to a bold and exciting new future."
--Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate "A call to action. Not only must politicians, businesses, and financial institutions change,
each one of us must play a role in developing a more caring society. This book is an
important tool that can help us make that happen
--Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute and United Nations
Messenger of Peace "A prescription for an economic system that is both equitable and sustainable. It should
be read and used by everyone who wants a better world!'
--Deepak Chopra, author of why God Laughing? The Path to Joy and Spiritual Optimism

"Eisler delivers another impressive work that's remarkably well referenced. well argued
insightful and hopeful."
