The Necessary Revolution

I picked up Peter Senge’s new book the other day on a whim. I liked his book The Fifth Discipline very much and was intrigued by the title of the new book: The Necessary Revolution: How Individuals and Organizations Are Working Together to Create a Sustainable World. I was floored by a sentence on page 6:

“…the simple fact that the wealth of the 200 richest people in the world exceeds the combined annual income of the world’s 2.5 billion poorest people should give anyone pause, as should the knowledge that almost half of the world’s population lives on less than $2 per day while the average American earns $130 per day.” (from The Necessary Revolution, page 6).

Contemplate that for a bit…
