To what extent do we understand our economic system, even though we are important factors in driving it? Identifying especially with the North American business community, Henry Rempel notes the price we pay for a system that constantly expands its reach to global dimensions.

This is a guide to our present economic system: how it came to be and how it works today. It seeks to contrast Adam Smith's ideal, and the recent realities of immense corporations and the fragile natural environment. This gentle critique recognizes the powerful impact the current economic system has in generating a high material standard of living with considerable human freedom. Yet it dares to believe that we can aspire to an even better system that is more responsive to changing social and environmental realities—a system where the creative and enterprising spirit is encouraged to seek a better life for the entire global community.
