The Humane Economy
How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of AnimalsAudiobook CD - 2016
Wayne Pacelle, President/CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, explores how everyday economic decisions impact the survival and well-being of animals, and how people can make choices that better support them. Though most people have never harpooned a sea creature, clubbed a seal, or killed an animal for profit, everyone is part of an interconnected web that has a tremendous impact on animal welfare, and the decisions made, whether supporting local, not industrial, farming; adopting a rescue dog or a shelter animal instead of one from a 'puppy mill'; avoiding products that compromise the habitat of wild species; or even seeing Cirque du Soleil instead of Ringling Brothers, do matter. This shows how everyday decisons as consumers can benefit animals, the environment, and human society, and why these decisions can make economic sense as well.
