Book: Doing good ... Says who?

Doing Good…Says Who?, a book written by Connie Newton and Fran Early, is based on over 400 interviews that put the reader on the ground with volunteers, NGOs, donors, and Guatemalans as cultures intersect. Through story telling, humor, analysis, and practical advice, Newton and Early highlight these five principles for guiding good intentions into shared productive outcome.

Ecological economics: A special series

As humanity faces the reality of exhausting a number of key natural resources, we realize that our economy, which is fundamentally built on the concept of never-ending exponential growth, must drastically change if we are going to live within the confines of a finite planet, Earth. This series of six articles, written by Dave Kane, looks at ecological economics and the idea of a steady state economy that will provide livelihoods while fitting within the footprint of Earth. The series was published in NewsNotes in 2009 and was updated in 2012.
