Summary
"'The chaos point' argues that we are at a critical point in history, one in which resources are fast being depleted, hundreds of millions live in crushing poverty, and local choices have global impact. Laszlo says society can either break down or break through to a new future by making different choices--choices he outlines in the book"--Provided by publisher
