The setting for the book – how industrial capitalism has been a boon for the world, raising productivity and incomes, but now threatening our industrial civilization with collapse. The principal challenge, it is argued, is to rethink the workings of capitalism to bring it into alignment with its ecological setting. Questions then immediately present themselves: where will the new shoots of a green economy come from? Which countries are likely to lead the transition, and why? Is it already too late for changes that will work? The chapter then summarizes the argument to be developed.
