This book, "Unbalanced World - The Asset Stewardship Shortfall" is now available at Amazon.
Have you ever felt like there was something missing from the world? Something making the world unbalanced? I have, often. When I was training as an accountant, I felt there was something missing from national accounts – a proper balance sheet. When I worked for BP, I felt that there wasn’t enough sustainability in the company’s future plans and strategies. All these were feelings that could be paraphrased as “hold on - there’s something missing here, something unbalanced”, or more colloquially as “a WTF moment”.
This book uses insights and analyses from the fields of ecology, economics and accountancy, tempered by real-world experience in all three sectors of the economy, to plug some of those gaps and bring information together into a World Balance Sheet, building on the works of previous fellow explorers in this space.
I also finally have the chance to put a name on the gap that has been in the back of my mind for decades - the asset stewardship shortfall.
