Elevated Economics: How Conscious Consumers Will Fuel the Future of Business

A vital leadership guide to understanding and engaging socially responsible consumers and investors

Consumers and investors have innovated their game. Now you as a leader must innovate with them or face the consequences. 

In this engaging and persuasive guide to the new world of conscious capitalism, entrepreneur and investor Richard Steel details the inevitability of the coming changes in capitalism. 

Our economy has become increasingly values-driven, and consumers have begun to care more about the principles of the companies from which they buy. With an eye toward the future of sustainability, Elevated Economics provides you with:

* Crucial information on the rise of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices.

* Informative, firsthand interviews with Ivy League business school professors and CEOs of successful companies who actively follow the ESG model.

* A framework for understanding trends in Socially Responsible Investing (SRI).

Steel makes the case that ESG is more than a burgeoning trend, and as a leader, you must get on board or risk extinction.
