BSI President David Jacoby has written another thought-provoking book on supply chain management, The High Cost of Low Prices: A Roadmap to Sustainable Prosperity.
Learn the secrets of international supply chains for familiar products such as coffee, bottled water, gasoline, and electronic devices, and how government policies and business norms around the world have evolved to allow practices that sometimes tolerate or even condone environmental and social mistreatment.
This book directly addresses complex and controversial issues like climate change, carbon taxes, fracking, offshoring, urban sprawl, globalization, income inequality, regulation, corruption, compliance and enforcement, providing an informed basis for mapping the way forward. Rich in facts and deep with first-hand experiences from around the world, Jacoby challenges embedded thinking about growth and progress, convenience, comfort, and quality of life.
The book proposes a bold and realistic new policy framework that is ground-breaking and achievable for industry, government, and consumers, and supports the plan with achievable metrics, targets, and accountabilities.
