Windhorse Publications are very excited to announce the release of Vaḍḍhaka Linn’s The Buddha on Wall Street: What’s Wrong with Capitalism and What We Can Do About It.

Described by David Loy as an ‘original, insightful, and provocative evaluation of our economic situation today’, The Buddha on Wall Street suggests that there is an alternative to our current economic system which allows us to fulfil our potential as human beings whilst living in a society less dominated by greed, inequality and suffering.

This sample chapter outlines what Buddhists can do in response to the waste inherent in our modern economic system. Find out more about The Buddha on Wall Street on Vaddhaka’s website.

Buy the book from Windhorse Publications online store, where it’s available now in both paperback and eBook format.

To download the chapter, click to read and choose ‘download’ from the sharing menu (top right of the on-screen controls).

Like many new books from Windhorse, this one is crowdfunded. If you’d like to donate £30 to their Buddha on Wall Street fundraising campaign, we will send a copy of the book straight out to you, and your money will go into promoting the book to a wider audience. Thank you so much to everyone who has already sponsored – it couldn’t have been published without you!
