Intelligent, accessible, essential, 1 April 2013
This is more than a book. It is a life-raft.
With the common sense buzzers in all our heads telling us that a host of things are fundamentally wrong - socially, economically and climatically - there is also a palpable anxiety everywhere about how on earth we stop the rot before it is too late.
Everyone should read this, so we can raise the debate to intelligent, decisive, peaceful, positive change.
The greed and growth obsessions of a few who have indoctrinated the many to the gross detriment of well-being, society and our planet will take some slaying, such is the sophistication of the control that has been weaved into our everyday lives, but we have to stand up and challenge it.
No, I don’t know Andrew Simms.
When you have read this keep reading the New Economics Foundation website.
We don’t have to agree on everything, but it is vital we start by agreeing that our instincts, our consciences are right. We have to change course.
