Jay Naidoo begs for change (now, or we’re 'heading for an explosion')

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed former Minister (1994 – 1999) Jay Naidoo for his weekly business book review.

Naidoo spoke about his new book entitled “Change - Organising tomorrow, today”.

Description on Amazon:

Unless there is significant change, the world is heading for an explosion.

The growing gap between rich and poor is dangerous and unsustainable.

The plundering of resources is damaging our planet.

Something has to be done.

In this book, Jay Naidoo harnesses his experience as a labour union organiser, government minister, social entrepreneur and global thought leader, and explores ways of solving some of the world’s biggest problems.

Drawing from his experiences in South Africa, Nigeria, Brazil, Bangladesh and other countries, he presents a variety of options for ending poverty and global warming, with a focus on organising in our communities and building change from below and beyond borders.

Naidoo’s message is unequivocal:

Significant action must be taken immediately if we want future generations to live in a world that we take for granted today.
