Item description for Gaian Democracies: Redefining Globalisation and People-Power (Schumacher Briefings) by Roy Madron & John Jopling...

Schumacher Briefing No 9
Our industrial activities have dangerously destabilized the Gaian system, and if humanity is to avoid disaster, we need to make changes now. In this new Briefing Roy Madron and John Jopling argue that we have no chance of achieving the necessary changes while our democracies exist to serve the "Global Monetocracy," which is engaged in the relentless pursuit of economic growth in order to sustain a global debt-money system for the benefit of the wealthy and powerful.
Gaian Democracies shows how to create a global network of just and sustainable societies that could co-exist symbiotically with Gaia. The authors stress the systems framework on which they have based their proposals and draw on real-world examples such as the Mondragon Cooperatives of Basque Spain, Visa International, the Semco Corporation, and the hundreds of participative budgets initiated by Brazilian Workers' Party.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gaian Democracies: Redefining Globalisation and People-Power (Schumacher Briefings)?

We Need New Governing and Monetary Systems  Jun 23, 2004
"Gian Democracies" is a powerful book. It explains and questions our need for perpetual economic growth-that over time can only lead to ecological disaster. It explains why our present economic system depends on such growth in order to provide jobs and keep our economy going. Our present economic system, fulfills the needs and desires of transnational corporations at the expense to the rest of us. It feasts upon the environment. The authors suggest changing our economic and governing system to a Gaian Democracy which would better meet the needs of individuals and be compatible with our planet. It suggests ways we can move in this direction. This is a good book. It should be widely read, and if taken seriously, could help turn us in the right direction for a sustainable future.
