About this product
- DescriptionAcross the world, in an ever-growing number of cities, people are starting to rise up against a global financial cabal that has, essentially, bought governments and left ecomies in tatters. Debt-stricken European countries are witnessing demonstrations from angry citizens as their ecomies crumble and pundits discuss how long it will take for neighbouring nations to follow suit. These protestors may t clearly understand the roots of the ecomic problems, r be able to articulate solutions. But they kw one thing: their lives have been radically changed, for the worse, by an unsustainable financial paradigm. In Occupy World Street, Ross Jackson delivers one of the most incisive, clear descriptions of the global financial practices that have driven ecomies to the brink of collapse. He also puts forth a compelling, detailed plan to let sovereign nations regain control of their ecomies, reorganise global trade alliances on a more human scale, and gradually phase out global institutions that have wreaked havoc, replacing them with institutions that support sustainable ecomies, uphold human rights and respect environmental standards. In essence, Jackson has done what few others have dared to do: constructed a specific, implementable plan to reorganise the way world ecomies work. It's a plan that, according to sustainable ecomics pioneer Hazel Henderson, has the potential to unite hundreds of NGOs and millions of ordinary citizens in the streets behind a single simple proposal that could change the current dysfunctional game.
- Author BiographyRoss Jackson was born in Canada, where he studied Engineering Physics as an undergraduate, which was followed by a Master's degree in Industrial Management at Purdue University, USA, then a PhD in Operations Research - the science of problem-solving - at Case Western Reserve University, USA. He has for many years been an innovative leader in both the business and NGO worlds. His business career has been as an independent IT consultant and software designer, specialising in international finance. In 1971 he co-founded Simcorp, which is now a leading global financial software company and listed on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchange. In 1988 he founded the first international hedge fund dealing exclusively with interbank currency trading. He is chairman of Gaia Trust, a Danish-based charitable entity, co-founded by him in 1987 to promote a more sustainable and spiritual world. The Trust has financed hundreds of sustainability projects in over 30 countries as well as several 'green' startups in Denmark, and continues to support two major international NGO initiatives - the Global Ecovillage Network and Gaia Education. Jackson has lived in Denmark since 1964, and became a Danish citizen in 1972. His current business interests include Urtekram, the leading organic foods wholesaler in Scandinavia, of which he is the director and major shareholder. He lives with his Danish wife Hildur on an organic farm near Copenhagen. He is the author of a number of books, including And We ARE Doing It: Building an ecovillage future, and is co-editor of When No Means Yes: Danish visions of a different Europe and Gaian Economics: Living well within planetary limits. www.ross-jackson.com www.occupyworldstreet.org
