What Counts Reviews



"As more people become concerned about the social impact of economic activities ... communities want to understand and recognize what the social economy does for them in creating social cohesion. This book makes a central contribution for people wishing to meet these needs. It belongs, its pages turned and reflected upon, in the boardrooms and among the memberships of all cooperatives and, indeed, all like-minded institutions." - Ian MacPherson, Director, British Columbia Institute for Co-operative Studies




"This book is very significant in providing the beginnings of an alternative social accounting that can actually be described conceptually, with procedures spelled out in a 'how-to-do' manner. I cannot rave enough about the significance and value of this book." - Thomasina Borkman, George Mason University




"With new questions arising every day to challenge the contributions that nonprofits make to our communities, it is essential that we have the tools to clearly demonstrate our worth. This book holds out the promise that we can meet this challenge. For those of us on the firing line, Quarter, Mook, and Richmond give us the ammunition we need to answer the communities' questions." - Bill Benet, Executive Director, Rochester Council on Occupational Safety and Health
