Storm Cunningham's revolutionary 3rd book, RECONOMICS, is now available as both paperback and e-book! Order it here.
A Guide to Healing Economies, Societies & Nature for Policymakers, Real Estate Investors & Entrepreneurs.
RECONOMICS: The Path To Resilient Prosperity is THE book for a world in crisis. Community, regional and national leaders worldwide are using the RECONOMICS Process described in this book to create ongoing, strategic regeneration programs for their economy, society and environment. RECONOMICS is the first book on how to boost resilience while growing green, fair economies. Crisis recovery, economic revitalization and community resilience should be unified goals: the same investment should achieve all three.
RECONOMICS is also the first book to reveal the zero-cost factor that triples the ROI of revitalization efforts, but sabotages them when it's missing. It's the guide to healing economies, societies and nature for policymakers, real estate investors, social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders and climate restoration champions.
If you have ANY role in improving your local future, you need to read this book. What it reveals can easily double the ROI (revitalization on investment) of your redevelopment, renewal, climate adaptation and crisis recovery efforts.
Hundreds of billions of dollars are budgeted for climate resilience by local and national governments worldwide...soon over a trillion. For this not to be an economic debacle, it's essential that resilience investments revitalize economies, not just protect them. Linking revitalization with resilience has the fringe benefit of increasing funding for resilience.

inextricably linking vision and task.”
