Undercurrents

by Steve Davis

Steve Davis, thought leader, Stanford professor and former CEO of the global development group PATH, discusses how readers can channel their outrage at social inequity to generate optimism and energy for change.

Equally adept at talking with Wall Street hedge fund managers or outreach workers in the slums of India, Davis uses an approach to social innovation that he calls “practical activism.” As the name suggests, it is anchored in finding common ground with allies in sometimes unlikely places. In Undercurrents, Davis lays out five global trends⁠—from the economic to the social—that any leader will want to leverage in the coming decade.

Through lively prose punctuated by stories collected over the course of Davis’s forty-year career in the field, Undercurrents inspires the activist in all of us.
