People like to compare two major ecomic systems side by side. The victorious one, neoliberalism, and the inferior one, socialism. A third way is t or is only seldom spoken of. One can find it, however, in this book. This ecomic system is liberal, but its neoliberal teeth have been decidedly pulled out by for example, making speculation and dumping wages impossible. This makes it an extremely exciting manuscript, and extremely worthy of consideration. This book offers t superficial optimism but instead an utterly explosive vision to incite debate. It is possibly one of the most important works that has been published in recent years. Reading this book left me with the same feeling I had after reading Shakespeare's A Mid-summer Night's Dream. This was said by a member of German Council of Ecomic Experts. A global and universally just world ecomic system doesn't have to remain a mere utopian vision. What we need, however, is an ecomic paradigm shift less radical than the shift from a geocentric to Copernican worldview. Coach and Change Manager Rainer Grunert characterizes himself as a radical lateral thinker, and his essay as a necessary heretical provocation in these times of world ecomic crisis. In The Third Way, he calls for an equalization of money and goods where instead of in-terest being paid; in the future fees should be paid for the storage of money - just as fees are paid for the storage of goods. From that basis, Rainer Grunert develops a model of world ecomy, which would very quickly make worldwide prosperity for all people possible and sustainable: The slow depreciation of money leads to a very active circulation of money worldwide, since saving it is longer worthwhile. Land is the only thing that maintains its value over time since the earth has a limited surface area. Grunert's idea is that a world authority would buy real estate from its current owners and immediately lease it back to him. Everyone on earth would be paid an unconditional basic income from the revenue generated. That way, all people would share in an equal ownership of the world, and worldwide distributive justice would be established.
