Marketing for Gold in the Age of AgingAuthor:Â Peter Hubbell
Making billions by saving the planetAuthors: Carl Hall
As fi ve billion people turn middle class, the world is entering an unprecedented age of scarcity. Weâve already seen it in the form of rising prices for raw materials and land. But this is just the beginning; soon our economies will be constrained by shortages in water and other raw materials, not to mention the increasing threat of global warming.
In a remote corner of the earth, a few small nations have been preparing for this resource scarcity. A movement that started in the Nordic region, and now spreading globally. A new breed of entrepreneurs â the Environmental Capitalists â are creating the solutions desperately needed to save a shrinking planet. And they are doing it with the system that is often seen as the cause of the problems we face today â capitalism. They have turned their backs on corporate social responsibility, sustainability and traditional environmentalism, seeing them as ineff ective, hypocritical and uninspiring. Instead, they have come to realize that capitalism is the only tool that can deliver solutions on the scale we need.
This inspiring book by self-confessed environmental capitalist Carl Hall presents fi ve principles on how to win in the coming age of scarcity. It provides entrepreneurs, companies, investors and policy-makers with specifi c examples and ideas on how to help save the planet and generate profi ts at the same time.

Building the Perpetually Innovative CompanyAuthors:Â Kai Engel, Violetka Dirlea, Stephen Dyer and Jochen Graff.
Masters of Innovation is the manual for creating a sustainable innovative organization â because innovation is not an art. Itâs a capability. The past 15 years have brought a flood of how-to books about innovation, most of them stuffed with stories of startling eureka moments and charismatic leaders. These stories have little to teach business leaders their own innovation capability. But Masters of Innovation clearly and concisely explains how managers make innovation more than just a âbreakthrough momentâ.
This book offers the real experience of the worldâs best Innovators. These are not just the hot âtechâ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectorsâautomotive, train travel, household appliancesâwhere slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a companyâs profitable growth for decades.
