Societal Renaissance

The monetary and societal reforms needed to address the challenges of global unemployment and developing world slums.

About the Book

How can we collaborate better, locally and globally?

Why are we experiencing and can we eradicate increasing inequality, growing public debt, the inexorable growth of slums, youth unemployment?

Yes, we can collaborate more effectively and equitably by:

"Explicitly and transparently intertwining society, politics and money through the democratised and decentralised creation, allocation and destruction of constrained and unconstrained credit based money in an open economy."

The book clarifies the above statement and proposes concrete solutions based on our latest understanding of complex adaptive systems, money, capital, human nature, digital value exchange, peer to peer platforms and Lean product development and manufacturing. Concrete proposals to how we must reform our monetary systems, financial services industries, local and national government, politics, societal systems and more. 

The book will change the way you view the world around you, and hopefully inspire you to contribute in some small way to bringing about a Societal Renaissance.
