In Getting Beyond Better, Roger L. Martin and Sally R. Osberg define social entrepreneurship and offer a framework that can be used as a road map by social entrepreneurs, funders, regulators, and teachers. Equilibrium change is a concept that is core to social entrepreneurship. Changing the status quo is time consuming, however, because existing systems are stable and hard to modify.

In The Business Romantic, author and marketing consultant Tim Leberecht demonstrates that romance is not only essential to leading a meaningful life, but it can be found and fostered in business. Leberecht argues that business must be viewed not through the lens of profit margins and productivity but instead as an opportunity for professionals to fulfill their emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs. To create an economy that serves people's entire selves, professionals must become Business Romantics. http://tinyurl.com/znjqfak

Evolution is a concept that is associated most commonly with the natural world. However, in The Evolution of Everything, Matt Ridley argues that evolution happens in every aspect of human culture. In domains as diverse as morality, technology, money, and religion, there is evidence that the world is a self-organizing, self-changing place that cannot be controlled or commanded by mankind. Ridley purports that evolution occurs not from top-down design but from bottom-up emergence. http://goo.gl/cg9qMf
