The Hungry Spirit

New Thinking for a New World




NEW THINKING FOR A NEW WORLD

While one third of the world's workforce has no paid work, more than two thirds of world trade is managed by just 500 corporations-answerable to no one but their investors. Against this picture of division and uncertainty, Charles Handy argues passionately for a future with values more sustaining and enriching than those of free market capitalism.The Hungry Spirit is an inspiring book -sometimes provocative, always intensely personal, and ultimately full of hope. It is certain to spark controversy and debate wherever it is read.
