Your guide to wealth creation through restoration

Restorative development is the largest, fastest-growing new source of prosperity in today's global economy. ReWealth! unveils the astonishing growth of this trend, presenting the context and strategies for taking advantage of the tremendous wealth of restorable assets-all while renewing and revitalizing the world around us.

Redevelopment expert Storm Cunningham explains how business and job growth is increasingly generating rewealth by rebuilding derelict structures, restoring water and dying ecosystems, and revitalizing farmlands. Drawing upon his extensive experience in economic development and integrated revitalization, Cunningham provides

  • A clear explanation of the global shift that is driving the multi-trillion-dollar market for products and services that revitalize cities and restore natural resources
  • Proven, universal rules of renewal that will enable you to bring communities, urban lands, and whole regions back to life-and raise all the money you need to do so
  • Proof that pollution, sprawl, and loss of wildlife habitat are not the inevitable price of progress
