Creating an Alternative Economy

This excerpt from Environmental activist Hazel Henderson book "Creating Alternative Futures: The End of Economics" provides an excellent framework for imagining and working toward an alternative economy.

| May/June 1978

An excerpt from Hazel Henderson's book "Creating Alternative Futures: The End of Economics" discussing working toward an alternative economy.

Creating an Alternative Economy

Senator Edward M. Kennedy has called Hazel Henderson "a unique contemporary pioneer in the effort to humanize modern science and technology". 

E.F. Schumacher once stated, "Mrs. Henderson's essays — every one of them — have more 'reality' than almost any other writings on societal problems I know."  

And Jacques-Yves Cousteau has said of Hazel Henderson's collected writings, "In this book are most of the ideas we are fighting for. Anybody longing for a better life must read it."  

And just who is this Hazel Henderson that all these people are talking about? She's an internationally published thinker, activist, and a founder of many public interest (particularly environmental) organizations . . . who, perhaps, sees things more clearly than most of today's Establishment "leaders" because she's never attended a day of college in her life.  

Furthermore — with her husband, Carter F. Henderson — Hazel currently (as of 1978) directs the Princeton Center for Alternative Futures, Inc. . . . a deliberately small and independent think tank.
