Book Description

April 30 2008

Across the globe, developers, investors, planners, civic leaders, community activists, and entrepreneurs are tapping into the $2 trillion market of the 21st century's most exciting trend-rewealth. By renewing what's already been developed and repairing damage done to natural resources, we are turning a 5000-year legacy of depletion and destruction into a $100 trillion worldwide inventory of restorable assets.

In ReWealth!, redevelopment expert Storm Cunningham reveals a vast new realm of fast-growing, highly profitable opportunities to revitalize our communities and our planet. He outlines the practices and strategies that achieve rapid, resilient renewal, generating tremendous wealth-not to mention personal satisfaction and happiness-through remarkable career and investment options.

Cunningham explains the three proven, universal principles that, when combined, enable nondestructive, unlimited economic growth that actually heals nature and society. He shows how you can generate rewealth by replenishing natural resources, rebuilding communities, redeveloping polluted land, restoring structures, and revitalizing economies.

You'll discover how to

  • Create a renewal vision, a renewal culture, and a renewal engine within a community
  • Earn a living reversing crises in energy, food, poverty, disease, culture, climate change, and more
  • Create faster, more effective, better-funded, and more sustainable economic growth through renewal partnerships
  • Fuel your education, career, and lifestyle through renewal activities
  • Avoid "bad" public-private partnerships during revitalization

You'll also read the inspiring personal stories of the people and organizations that restore our world: from James Aronson, who is helping Africa shift from dewealth to rewealth; to two cities that pioneered a universal model for community revitalization; to two young friends whose $10 million tea company restores jungle habitats and tribal lands in three nations.

ReWealth! will help you, your organization, and your community make the world healthier, wealthier, and happier through rejuvenation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visionary book that offers a real path to profitable sustainability Aug. 15 2008
By Eric Garland - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These days, millions think that they are "green" or "sustainable" because they buy organic Cheetos and two dollars of carbon offset on some website. Meanwhile, the real work of ecological sustainability remains for future generations. This real work will involve changing the way business is done by fixing up broken systems and making a profit at the same time. Not an easy task - but luckily one man has a clear vision to offer us.

Storm Cunningham has written an absolutely brilliant book that is a prescient look at what real sustainability will require. He tells tale after tale of the leaders of business and government who found ways to profit while fixing watersheds, revitalizing waterfronts, improving schools, cleaning up toxic waste sites, repairing national economies, and much more.

While the current "green movement" is stuck in telling us what NOT to do, Cunningham gives us an expert guide of what we CAN do to improve our world and even make a few bucks.

Every business and government executive in the world needs to read this book twice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading June 13 2008
By Ray Nichols - Published on
I've been a Storm Cunningham fan for several years. The Restoration Economy defined opportunities that had the potential for unifying preservationists, developers, coastal restoration experts, government officials and everyone else concerned with our natural and built environment. reWealth! describes Storm's new Renewal Engine which has been expanded to include socio-economic factors such as culture and education and describes a number of successes in it's use.

Mayor Ray Nagin and the New Orleans City Council have been provided copies of reWealth!. I encourage everyone to get their own. Several friends gave copies of The Restoration Economy to college age relatives hoping they would catch the trends and reWealth! is even more exciting!

Thanks Storm!
