Have you read a Dhamma book today?

Book title : Business and the Buddha : Doing Well by Doing Good
Author : Lloyd Field
ISBN : 0-86171-544-6
Publisher : Wisdom Publications Boston

“No longer can any business – big or small – afford to focus solely on profit.  Real assessment of a business’s worth must take into account its consideration of human values and the realities of our shared planet…” 

Inspired by the holistic teachings of the Buddha centred on the Four Noble Truths, Lloyd shows how business pursuits can be done in more humanistic ways; leaders, decision makers and entrepreneurs can achieve different levels of happiness and security both within and without the company, and take a power-position as a force for positive global change. 

Contents :
What’s free about free enterprise?
A vision of the future
Dharma, karma and the Four Noble Truths
Buddhism, economics, and the interconnected world
Buddhist ethics and business
The healthy organisation
The transition to compassion
Changing your world, your workplace, and yourself
& others
