About this product
- DescriptionThere are plenty of books in this world which will tell you what is wrong with this world. There are fewer books which will tell you what needs to be done to save it and our civilisation from self-destruction. And there are few indeed which tell you exactly how to go about achieving a sweeping overhaul of an entire society. This little Manifesto is the result of four years of discussion by a group of students reading for their undergraduate degrees at the ancient and elite University of St. Andrews. It is the distillation of the main recommendations of a five hundred thousand word book manuscript called Freeing Growth: Volume 1 which assumes that if we are screwed as the evidence would suggest, then an authoritarian regime is highly likely to be enacted by a panicking population as billions starve, floods of refugees hit our shores, and the price of oil, fresh water and raw materials skyrocket. If an authoritarian regime is therefore likely inevitable, we asked what is the best form of authoritarianism? What measures would deliver rapid, long term sustainable ecomic growth? Who should be allowed civil liberties and who ought to be repressed? How do we go about restoring our relationship with God to the centre of our ecomy? What should be done about the old? Indeed, what should be done about the children? This Manifesto presents an integrated, holistic, and techlogy centred set of proposals based on n-orthodox financial systems. It is provided, as close to at cost as possible, to anyone interested. If you like thinking outside the box, this book is for you. Niall Douglas challenges us to imagine a fundamentally different capitalism. - Norbert Haring, author of Ecomics 2.0: What the Best Minds in Ecomics Can Teach You About Business and Life This book displays the brightest and brainiest of a new generation, making a serious attempt to put right errors of the previous one. They're t always right, but they're always fresh and interesting. - Francis Beckett, author of What Did the Baby Boomers Ever Do for Us?
