This review is from: The Infinite Resource: The Power of Ideas on a Finite Planet (Kindle Edition)
This is an exceptional book, of importance not so much for its literary style (though it is highly readable) as for the logical well founded way it sets out the problems we all collectively face AND provides some solutions that give real hope AND a strawman roadmap to implementation of those solutions. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT BOOK.
Ramez for global President/CEO? I am sure he is much too sensible to take on such a thankless task but the biggest challenge is how to get a book that makes this much sense and is in no sense party political into the hands and minds of every politician and key influencer and decision maker so that the necessary actions start to be taken - primarily around fixing the market so the problems we face become a major focus fo the combined brainpower of 7 billion. Gosh - it doesn't even sound that hard! The ill effects of smoking was a battle that has been won in many countries around the world against corporate vested interest for overwhelming common good and the challenge here is similar and even more important.
The thing that really cheered me is that there ARE very likely solutions which are workable and achievable at the necessary scale if we apply ourselves. I get so fed up with "token greenism" which does nothing to address the scale of the problem we all face, and the divorced from reality stance that the Green Party takes.
Ramez does not come across as a zealot or extremist, nor does he try to solve all the problems of the world, and this allows the central issues to be examined with thoroughness, impartiality and credibility.
Well done - I will buy a copy for my MP as a start, buy a copy and one for your MP too!
