Transforming Towards Life-Centered Economies: How Business, Government, and Civil Society Can Build A Better World


“This slim volume is not just as thorough and concise a summary of the need to transform our financial system as you will find anywhere. It also clearly envisions how the creation of collaborative value, sustainable stewardship, and an “enough-not-more” mantra can drive a transformational change that will benefit the all as well as the one.” — Steve Lydenberg, Founder, The Investment Integration Project, Partner, Strategic Vision for Domini Impact Investments
“This book is a tour de force of argument and insight. Sandra Waddock weaves a compelling narrative around what brought us to this point, and elegantly unpacks the narratives, memes, metrics and actions with which we can shape a flourishing future for humanity and for nature. It is a timely and powerful call to action for all who care about the future in the aftermath of COVID-19.” —Zenda O r, Independent Evaluator, Vice P resident, International Development Evaluation Society (IDEAS), Honorary Professor, Stellenbosch University, South Africa
“Transforming Toward Life offers a clear picture for why we must and how each of us can help fix our failing systems. With remarkable practicality, Dr. Waddock reestablishes original precepts that allowed all life on our beautiful planet to flourish- before we made a wrong turn.” —Wahinkpe Topa (Four Arrows), professor and author of 22 books including The Red Road: Linking Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives to Indigenous Worldview
