Summary

Laurie Bassi and her coauthors show that despite the dispiriting headlines, we are entering a more hopeful economic age. 

The authors call it the “Worthiness Era.” And in it, the good guys are poised to win. 

Good Company explains how this new era results from a convergence of forces, ranging from the explosion of online information sharing to the emergence of the ethical consumer and the arrival of civic-minded Millennials. Across the globe, people are choosing the companies in their lives in the same way they choose the guests they invite into their homes. They are demanding that companies be “good company.”

Proof is in the numbers. The authors created the Good Company Index to take a systematic look at Fortune 100 companies’ records as employers, sellers, and stewards of society and the planet. The results were clear: worthiness pays off. Companies in the same industry with higher scores on the index—that is, companies that have behaved better—outperformed their peers in the stock market. And this is not some academic exercise: the authors have used principles of the index at their own investment firm to deliver market-beating results.

Using a host of real-world examples, Bassi and company explain each aspect of corporate worthiness and describe how you can assess other companies with which you do business as a consumer, investor, or employee. This detailed guide will help you determine who the good guys are—those companies that are worthy of your time, your loyalty, and your money.

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.
