Editorial Reviews

Smith earned his PhD in environmental and political economics from the Union Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio; he is the author of several books and is the founder of the Institute for Economic Democracy, a nonprofit foundation devoted to research on sustainable development. This treatise begins: "Eliminating poverty is not philosophically complicated: Eliminate the monopolization of land, technology, and finance capital and equalize pay for equally productive work...."
