Review by Zachary deMoya forthcoming.


Sometime in your business life you've looked up from the task or person in front of you, paused before your head explodes, and thought to yourself, "There's got to be a better way!" This book offers you that better way. Whether you're in school preparing for the world of work or have experienced multiple careers, whether you make decisions that affect others or are affected by others' decisions as their employee or customer, whether you're part of a multinational corporation or a small business or a ministry or a government, this book shows how you're affected by plantation economics. It then shows you the more profitable—beneficial—viewing, thinking, and living of capitalism through the framework of Partnership Economics. Better Capitalism adds value across the full landscape of capitalism and the bridged worlds of business and faith. Ready for that better way? Read on to unleash a more profitable and ethical capitalism.

About the Author(s)/Editor(s)/Translator(s): 

Paul E. Knowlton and Aaron E. Hedges have training and experience with one foot squarely in the world of business and the other squarely in the world of faith. They find that these two communities can be bridged for the immense benefit of both. This bridging has greatly benefited them and those they have led in their interdisciplinary roles of entrepreneur, business owner, minister, Director, Partner, COO, and CEO, as well as their biggest roles of husband and dad.
