Nigel Topping: Don’t blame the Hammer!


Before we blame our current system of global capitalism for all social and environmental ills, let’s pause a while to reflect on its strengths and weaknesses. Perhaps there is a possibility of creating a new ‘Wisdom Capitalism’ that heals rather than destroys, perhaps there is a risk of throwing the baby out with the bathwater?
