In the absence of innovation in the field of conservation finance, a daunting funding gap faces conservationists aiming to protect America’s system of landscapes that provide sustainable resources, water, wildlife habitat, and recreational amenities. Experts estimate that the average annual funding gap will be between $1.9 billion and $7.7 billion over the next forty years. Can the conservation community come up with new methods for financing that will fill this enormous gap? Which human and financial resources will allow us to fund critical land conservation needs? From Walden to Wall Street brings together the experience of more than a dozen pioneering conservation finance practitioners to address these crucial issues. Contributors present groundbreaking ideas including mainstreaming environmental markets; government ballot measures for land conservations; convertible tax-exempt financing; and private equity markets. The creativity and insight of From Walden to Wall Street offers considerable hope that, even in this era of widespread financial constraints, the American conservation community’s financial resources may potentially grow dramatically in both quantity and quality in the decades to come.

Enough of the imbalance that is causing the degradation of our environment, the demise of our democracies, and the denigration of ourselves. Enough of the pendulum politics of left and right and paralysis in the political center. We require an unprecedented form of radical renewal. In this book Henry Mintzberg offers a new understanding of the root of our current crisis and a strategy for restoring the balance so vital to the survival of our progeny and our planet.
With the collapse of the communist regimes of Eastern Europe, Western pundits declared that capitalism had triumphed. They were wrongbalance triumphed. A healthy society balances a public sector of respected governments, a private sector of responsible businesses, and a plural sector of robust communities. Communism collapsed under the weight of its overbearing public sector.
Now the liberal democracies are threatenedsocially, politically, even economicallyby the unchecked excesses of the private sector.
Radical renewal will have to begin in the plural sector, which alone has the inclination and the independence to challenge unacceptable practices and develop better ones. Too many governments have been co-opted by the private sector. And corporate social responsibility can’t compensate for the corporate social irresponsibility we see around us They won’t do it. We shall have to do it, each of us and all of us, not as passive human resources, but as resourceful human beings.
Tom Paine wrote in 1776, We have it in our power to begin the world over again. He was right then. Can we be right again now? Can we afford not to be?
