Conscious Globalism explores today’s conflicts — economic, political and social — and offers pragmatic solutions. Looking behind the globalization headlines, Schwerin expands on the time-tested principles in his first book, Conscious Capitalism (Butterworth-Heinemann 1998). Many books have been written about the challenges faced when cultures collide and the pace of life quickens, but most suggest only superficial solutions — dealing with effects rather than causes. Schwerin probes deeply and finds that an erroneous view of reality — with its corresponding distortions — is the source of most problems. Conscious Globalism draws on the author’s 30 years of business experience and a life-long study of ageless wisdom to provide practical tools and models for resolving global conflicts and enriching lives.

“Conscious Globalism is thought provoking, topical and compelling. Dr. Schwerin addresses, with eloquent prose and wry wit, the challenges and rewards of global enterprise. Recognizing the wide spectrum of interests, he uses a cogent selection of real-world examples to show that ‘values-driven idealism can be combined with results-driven pragmatism’ to the lasting benefit of all inhabitants of our global village.”

“David Schwerin is doing great work in reminding the business community of its enormous responsibilities. Economic globalization has given corporations great freedom; hence,much depends on how they use it. Those who read Conscious Globalism will have their tendencies to conscientiousness and inclusive concern strongly reinforced. Thanks for doing this.”
