What others are saying about 'Capitalism: What's the point?'
“Terrafiniti’s Towards 9 Billion book series asks the important questions that lie beneath the
accelerating chaos of systems no longer fit for purpose. We ignore them at our peril. They provide
insightful analysis and innovative solutions which help us see the reality of the challenge, and the
hope for change, through a clear lens. I hope these important contributions are widely read.”
John Fullerton, Founder and President, Capital Institute
“Big ideas for massive challenges: Terrafiniti’s Towards 9 Billion provides a wide range of solution-
oriented perspectives on the prospect – often seen as daunting – of accommodating 9 billion
people within the remits of our one planet.” David Nussbaum, Chief Executive, WWF-UK
“Suspect the future’s going to be very different? Unsure how multiple economic, social and
environmental forces will collide? But too little time to explore? Well treat yourself to a
Towards 9 billion book. Short, sharp, accessible insights on what the future might look like
and how you should prepare for it.”
Mike Barry, Director, Plan A, Marks & Spencer
“Few commentators on sustainability understand just how important compound interest and its
reciprocal in the discount rate are in driving an unsustainable future. By normalising discounting as a
means of investment appraisal we discount the children’s future. We turn the world into a cog within
the financial machine. Joss Tantram’s book draws attention to this matter, meriting close attention.”
Alastair McIntosh, author of ‘Soil and Soul’
