Earlier today I was looking for Small is Beautiful at the local library and this other book tucked away with the economics tomes jumped off the bookshelf and I found myself checking it out.
"Hungry Spirit | Beyond Capitalism: A Quest for Purpose in the Modern World"
by Charles Handy (an ex-Shell executive and professor at London Business School), 1998, quotes: "I suspect, in fact, that the next great clashes in the world will not be between nation states, or between conflicting economic systems, but between belief systems, which sometimes get called religions (such as Islam), sometimes civilizations (India or China), and sometimes cultures (Western). Beliefs are always personal but they need not be private. Shared and spread they can change the world more than governments can."
