Not by Money Alone: The Economics of Physical Reality by Malcolm Slesser, Jane King
Arguing that globalization has created a disparity of wealth among nations, this treatise offers a new vision of international collaboration in which the principles of market forces can be harnessed to create a just society. The modern obsession with money is deconstructed to reveal that the contributions of individuals and the natural world are undervalued. A system of "natural capital accounting" is offered as a new measurement in which the basis of economic decision-making is shifted from money to science and scientific realities.
