Overview

"The world is in turmoil. We seem to be caught up in a vortex of terrorism, economic confusion, environmental deterioration and erosion of civil liberties. Globalisation appears to be backfiring and there are few signs that we are succeeding in bringing about greater equality among nations. Ironically, we are witnessing the consequence of policies originally promoted in the name of freedom of choice, equity and progress." "We should reflect. The terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre had its origin, at least partly, in a hatred of the values and financial hegemony of the western industrialised nations. We must seek to ensure that every world citizen can attain a just share of the world's economic potential. In the democratic states at least, the ordinary citizen still has the power to dictate a new agenda to the politicians." This book demonstrates how we must look directly to the laws of the physical world to determine our future prospects. The result of many years of international collaboration, it demonstrates in practical terms how economic forces may be harnessed to human ambition in the creation of a society which is exciting, just and at the same time durable.
