From the Publisher

A generation of people around the world, from Boston to Bangkok, from New York to New Delhi, are making everyday choices in ways that defy traditional logic. They are judging where and how their clothes were made, not just how they fit. They are thinking global but buying local. They are spending their money and their time, forming loyalties, casting votes and even enjoying entertainment based increasingly upon their desire to make a positive impact on others and the world around them. This new generation believes they can and must make the world better, and they expect business and government to get with the program.
The implications of the Conscience Economy are not "soft." Ignore it, and your consumer or voter base will rebel, using a host of free tools and cheap connectivity to spread their rejection to peers around the world in real time. Leverage it, and Conscience Culture is a wellspring of financial upside. The Conscience Economy is the must-hear guide to this unprecedented shift in human motivation and behavior. Author Steven Overman provides context, inspiration and some basic tools to help listeners reframe how they evolve and grow whatever it is they lead-whether it's a community, a business, a product, or a marketing campaign. From the boardroom to the startup loft, from the State Department to the pulsing marketplaces of the developing world, The Conscience Economy will help international leaders, influencers, investors and decision-makers to manage, innovate and thrive in a new world where "doing good" matters as much as "doing well."

    The Forgotten Landscapes of the United States

    When Lauret Edith Savoy first heard the word “colored” at five years old, she saw herself as exactly that—full of veins as blue as the sky. Not long after, she learned another definition, steeped in racism. “Words full of spit showed that I could be hated for being ‘colored,’” she writes. “By the age of eight I wondered if I should hate in return.” Out of this painful history, Savoy has created something rich and productive—a body of work that examines the complex relationships between land, identity, and history. Today, Savoy, who is of African American, Euro-American, and Native American de

    The Tables Have Turned

    Javier Blas, with Nayla Razzouk, Grant Smith, and Angelina Rascouet At a meeting in Algiers on Sept. 28, after two days of round-the-clock talks, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed to the outlines of its first oil production cut in eight years. Ministers said that the group, which supplies about 40 percent of the world’s oil, will drop production to between 32.5 million and 33 million barrels a day. Most details, however, have yet to be agreed upon. Saudi Arabia had wanted the cut badly—a reversal of its previous role in OPEC dealmaking. In 2014 the government in Ri

    The U.S. Unleashes the Full Power of Shale, as a Wave of Its LNG Exports Hits the Market

    Naureen S. Malik Sometime in 2017, for the first time in 60 years, the U.S. will likely sell more natural gas to the world than it buys. Next year, capacity to export liquefied natural gas from the lower 48 states, chilled to –260F so it can be shipped by tanker, will more than double, to 3.2 billion cubic feet per day. That will add to huge increases in the volume of gas already being piped to Mexico and could boost exports to foreign countries to about 9 percent of total U.S. gas production. A lot of those new exports will go to Latin America. Since the first LNG tanker left the Louisiana
