9780062389640: The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals

A NEW YORK TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, and LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER

"ESSENTIAL READING."   — JANE GOODALL

"A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT BOOK."   — JACK WELCH

From the leader of the nation’s most powerful animal-protection organization comes a frontline account of how conscience and creativity are driving a revolution in American business that is changing forever how we treat animals and create wealth. Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the United States reveals how entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 CEOs, world-class scientists, philanthropists, and a new class of political leaders are driving the burgeoning, unstoppable growth of the “humane economy.”

Every business grounded on animal exploitation, Pacelle argues, is ripe for disruption. Indeed each one of us is, and will be, touched by this far-reaching transformation in food and agriculture; in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and cosmetics industries; in film, television, and live entertainment; in tourism and wildlife management; in the pet trade for dogs and cats and exotic wildlife; and in fur and leather fashions. Collectively it promises to relieve or end the suffering of billions of creatures, while allowing businesses aligned with the best instincts and values of their customers to flourish. 

Pacelle shows, for instance, how the cruelties of industrial chicken farming are quickly becoming obsolete with a visit to Hampton Creek, the makers of a plant-based egg substitute and the world’s fastest-growing food startup ever.  Pacelle also recounts the stories of how established companies are joining in this economic transformation: from Petco and PetSmart, which have turned the conventional pet store model on its head by forswearing puppy mill suppliers in favor of shelter dogs; to John Paul Mitchell Systems, the Body Shop, and Lush, which use safe ingredients instead of animal tests for their cosmetics; to major food retailers like Whole Foods, Chipotle, and even Costco and Walmart, which are embracing animal welfare standards that are one by one unwinding the horrors of the factory farm.

The Humane Economy is a clarion call to business leaders and to the world’s growing animal protection movement; it is equally a warning to the static thinking of animal-use industries and their apologists: “Here, in this humane economy,” Pacelle argues, “human ingenuity meets human virtue, and we discover at last that we can have it both ways – a better world for us and for animals, too.”

From the Back Cover:

From the leader of one of the world’s most powerful animal-protection organizations comes a frontline account of how conscience and creativity are driving a revolution in business that is changing forever how we treat animals and create wealth. Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the United States reveals how entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 CEOs, world-class scientists, a new class of political leaders, and, most important, consumers are driving the burgeoning, unstoppable growth of the “humane economy.”

Every business grounded on animal exploitation, Pacelle argues, is ripe for disruption. Indeed each one of us is, and will be, touched by this far-reaching transformation in food and agriculture; in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and cosmetics industries; in film, television, and live entertainment; in tourism and wildlife management; in the pet trade for dogs and cats and exotic wildlife; and in fur and leather fashions. Collectively it promises to relieve or end the suffering of billions of creatures, while allowing businesses aligned with the best instincts and values of their customers to flourish.

Advance Praise

The Humane Economy is essential reading for anyone interested in animal welfare. This fabulous book reveals the inside story of how the fight against human cruelty to animals is gradually being won and some of the surprising individuals who have helped to make this happen. HSUS’s Wayne Pacelle is to be congratulated on writing a fascinating, highly readable, and remarkably comprehensive book, covering animal issues ranging from factory farms to puppy mills, from trophy hunting to genetic modification, from medical and pharmaceutical testing to entertainment. Please help to increase awareness of ongoing animal suffering by sharing this book and encouraging everyone to take some part in creating a truly humane society.”—Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, and UN Messenger of Peace

“There’s a coming disruption in business, affecting industries from agriculture to pharmaceuticals to media, and it’s being driven by new technologies, human ingenuity, and the new momentum of the animal-protection movement. In The Humane Economy, Wayne Pacelle powerfully explores the changes already under way—and ahead. A critically important read for anyone who cares about business success or animals—or, like so many of us, both.”—Jack Welch, founder of the Jack Welch Management Institute

THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES (HSUS) is America’s largest animal-protection organization. The society and its affiliates provide hands-on care and services to more than 150,000 animals each year, working also to professionalize the broader animal-care field through education and training. HSUS is also the leading animal advocacy organization, seeking a humane world for people and animals alike. It drives transformational change in the U.S. and around the world by combating large-scale cruelties such as puppy mills, animal fighting, factory farming, seal slaughter, horse cruelty, captive hunts, and the wildlife trade.

 

About the Author:
