For those concerned with where life is going on the flagship earth and whether or not they want to go there, Occupy World Street is not only a wake-up call but also a call for action and a strategy for changing course before it’s too late.

"Ross Jackson presents us with an extraordinary global plan to tackle the multiple crises of our times-awesome in conception, sensitive in detail, and realistic enough to succeed."

Quotes from the Book
The Gaian Development Bank—replacing the functions of the IMF and World Bank, and funded by freed-up foreign exchange reserves—will finance real non-exploitative development in the developing countries using local currency loans to revitalize local communities, create employment, and encourage local production of their most essential needs—food, energy, housing, textiles, and so on, as well as value-added products, as they develop into sustainable states.
