2014-03-02

The author is part of the "Alternative Management" third year specialization program in HEC Paris

Financial crisis, ecological crisis, social crisis, Patrick Viveret precisely and clearly analyses our world’s great changes, signs that announce a true change of era. There is an urgency, and we must now decide which path we want to follow : regress, or encourage a « civilized » way out of capitalism ? The auteur invites us to overcome our fears caused by the mutation of civilization, and to fervently defend the human cause. At stake is nothing less than the salvation of our species. Both analyst of a past world and builder of a new world, the author offers a rich panorama of initiatives that are being put in place, and invites us to act for a society of the « living well »
