Building Economies of Well-being and a Civilization of Love
Mark Anielski is one of those rare economists with an enlightened vision to integrate love and happiness into economics. His vision is about an economy of well-being, a civilization of love, that means a society where the core values of our hearts are aligned with the measures of our well-being; and that these genuine well-being measures are what guides our decisions. 'Wealth is the harvest of Love'. From Anielski's point of view our business plan is rather simple: 'to BE the LOVE that you are and to BE the LIGHT of LOVE to the World. Love built your home, love built your community and our nation, love determines the parameters of right conduct. Love commands the universe because LOVE created the universe.'
