With the current pandemic, the world is in lock down. An unprecedented global supply chain and business shutdown, capital market collapse, and global depression, exposes the fragility of an economic and financial system that has been taken for granted for too long.
Everyone knew something was wrong all along. But nobody dared to question, as the experts hadn't a clue how to fix it. Following decade of protest with people across the world calling for new values and a new economic system. Bretton Woods is history. The Washington Consensus bankrupt. What's left? What's next?
A Time for Shambhala is a roadmap for recoding a new planet paradigm. One based not on greed but on balance and pragmatism. It provides a rational and holistic approach for a sustainable planet. It is not about theory but practice. Economics from the grass roots up, not top down models. It calls for: compassionate capital, conscientious consumption, stakeholder value, environmental economics, and a more holistic approach toward a sustainable future. It takes real life experiences across the globe and brings them back to home, to re-pioneer America. It is economics with a heart, a mind and a soul.
Foreword by Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, sixth man on the Moon.

"With A Time for Shambhala Brahm takes on an impossible task -- and succeeds. He weaves the profanity of modern econmoics into a tangible narrative which perfectly describes our social-ecological auto-destruct and then forges not only a bypass but an entire heart-transplant. People and planet should salute this noble offering." -- Sacha Stone, Founder of Humanitad and the New Earth Project, Founder of the ITNJ (itnj.org)
