    Allen Hershkowitz Tells An All Too Familiar Tale

    Dr. Hershkowitz saw a problem and a cure, and carried this vision to a point where it cried for completion. Like so many well designed projects that make both economic sense and meet environmental and resource stewardship objectives, the cure prescribed was thwarted and then defeated by powerful officials and business interests protecting turf, power, income, and egos. An excellent primer for entrepreneurs who have good sense ideas for triple bottom line manufactring companies and need to gauge the battlefield.
