Capital Institute's "Dog Days of Summer" Reading List


 
Are you looking for end-of-summer reading recommendations? We humbly suggest looking back on Dr. Sally Goerner's, John Fullerton's and Bob E. Ulanowicz's five most popular posts from this past year.  

John Fullerton Sits in on LIFT Economy Podcast

The LIFT Economy's Next Economy Now podcast highlights leaders that are taking a regenerative, bio-regional, democratic, transparent, and whole-systems approach to using business as a force for good.  John was thrilled to sit in on a recent episode of theirs, where he shared the Regenerative Capitalism framework.

What We're Reading
 
The emergence of regenerative thinking continues to come from all sources. A new World Bank  report and  online platform showcases examples of urban regeneration, and provides tools for city planners to replicate such success.

"The report draws on the experience of eight cities from different regions and income groups that worked closely with the private sector to rejuvenate neglected urban areas."
Monthly Quote

Hat tip to Hildegarde Hannum of the Schumacher Center for New Economics for sharing the following quote with us:

"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community. And as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no 'brief candle' to me; it is a sort of splendid torch, which I have got hold of for a short moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."

--George Bernard Shaw
