The Moral Economy Project yields a forthcoming Book

From the beginning of the Quaker Institute for the Future in the August of 2003 when Friends who had gathered at Pendle Hill earlier in the summer reconvened in Bar Harbor, Maine, to pursue the development of a new kind of "Quaker think tank", there was a leading to undertake the collaborative writing of a book that would advance the development of Friends' testimonies concerning ecology and the economy.  This led to the Moral Economy Project which is now closing in on the completion of a book that will be forthcoming in early 2009 from Berrett- Koehler Publishers as RIGHT RELATIONSHIP: BUILDING A WHOLE EARTH ECONOMY. A website for the book and related initiatives will open on June 10, 2008 at
