The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals
The Humane Economy explores the economics of animal exploitation and is a practical roadmap for how we can use the marketplace to promote the welfare of all living creatures, from the renowned animal-rights advocate Wayne Pacelle, President/CEO of the Humane Society of the United States and New York Times bestselling author of The Bond. This transformation is emblematic of a new sort of economic revolution, one that has the power to transform the future of animal welfare.
This transformation is emblematic of a new sort of economic revolution, one that has the power to transform the future of animal welfare. In The Humane Economy, Pacelle explores how our everyday economic decisions impact the survival and well being of animals, and how we can make choices that better support them. Though most of us have never harpooned a sea creature, clubbed a seal, or killed an animal for profit, we are all part of an interconnected web that has a tremendous impact on animal welfare, and the decisions we make—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. The Humane Economy shows us how what we do everyday as consumers can benefit animals, the environment, and human society, and why these decisions can make economic sense as well.
