    Sufficiency Thinking - Thailand's gift to an unsustainable world

    In order to help address increasing global concerns over wealth inequality and secure access to natural resources (including food and clean water), Assoc. Prof. Sooksan Kantabutra from the College of Management Mahidol University (CMMU), with a generous grant from Thailand Sustainable Development Foundation, and a host of leading Thai scholars and experts have added their voices to the book– Sufficiency Thinking - Thailand's gift to an unsustainable world.

    In this publication, the authors describe how the innovative management practices developed by King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand have been applied across a range of sectors nationwide - including agriculture, education, and business, government, and community organizations.

    They also reveal how the Thai model of sufficiency thinking has transformed mindsets and enriched lives - as well as the implications of this approach to sustainable development for policy makers worldwide.

    The book is edited by Dr. Gayle C. Avery, Professor of Management at Macquarie Graduate School of Management; and Dr. Harald Bergsteiner - an honorary professor at the Australian Catholic University – the founders of the Institute for Sustainable Leadership and authors of Sustainable Leadership: Honeybee and Locust Approaches. It is published by Allen and Unwin, Australia.
