Example text

People from all walks of life began to question the kind of economy that makes sense for their businesses, communities, and families. And while anger was initially directed at the bankers who received hundreds of billions of taxpayer “bailout” money—only to invest it for their own personal gain—the distaste for this brand of greed has caused many to ask deeper questions about the financial system and capitalism in general: Is it the public’s duty to “prop up” unsuccessful companies when capitalism dictates that they should simply fail and be replaced by more innovative, adaptive, or creative players?

They shattered the myth that business should treat societal issues as expensive obligations. Instead, seen through the prism of quality and stakeholder management, these issues could become important opportunities for the company to improve its societal and operating performance simultaneously. A growing body of research pointed to the potential for enhanced financial performance through well-executed pollution prevention and product stewardship strategies. Pioneers such as 3M, Dow, and Dupont realized significant cost reductions and enhanced reputations as a result of their activities.

Indeed, as I revise this prologue in early 2010, few people question the title of the book. The landscape has changed substantially even since the publication of the second edition of the book in 2007. In fact, I believe the year 2008 will come to be recognized as the turning point. Beginning that year, a series of crises gripped the planet— the oil price spike, the world food shortage, the subprime debacle, the global financial crisis, and finally, the Great Recession. Add these crises to the already long list of ongoing mega-problems—melting glaciers, climate change, loss of biodiversity, deep poverty, growing inequity, hopelessness, terrorism—and it finally became clear to most that something fundamental was wrong.
