This Could Be Our Future review × eBook or Kindle ePUB Break free from a wealth obsessed worldWestern society is trapped by three assumptions 1 the point of life is to maximize your self interest and wealth 2 we're individuals trapped in an adversarial world and 3 that this path is inevitableThese ideas separate us keep us powerless and limit our imagination for the future We see them as the truth but they are just a point of view that previous generations accepted as inevitable It's time we replace them with. On the measure of GDP in 1968 Robert Kennedy saidToo much and for too long we seemed to have surrendered personal excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things Our Gross National Product now is over 800 billion dollars a year but that Gross National Product if we judge the United States of America by that that Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them It counts the destruction of the redwood and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl It counts napalm and counts nuclear warheads and ard cars for the police to fight the riots in our cities It counts Whitman s rifle and Speck s knife and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our childrenYet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children the uality of their education or the joy of their play It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials It measures neither our wit nor our courage neither our wisdom nor our learning neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country it measures everything in short except that which makes life worthwhile And it can tell us everything about America except why we are proud that we are AmericansIf this is true here at home so it is true elsewhere in worldYancey Strickler s book drives home this key insight for our timesModern business has maximized profit as the only measure of impact It doesn t have to be this wayBusiness can be a partner in helping use markets to affect change while recognizing its holistic impact on civilization beyond the productBe prepared real change takes time often decades 30 years or longer by Yancey s count Kennedy gave that speech in 1968 Here we are some 50 years later no closer to acting on the insightDo what you can today to change tomorrowDo it today
