Praise for the book

"If you have seen the Occupy Wall Streeters but can't quite fathom either what they are trying to say or how they might actually succeed, Ross Jackson has something to tell you."

- Albert Bates, author of The Biochar Solution


Quotes from the Book

Generally speaking, the ideal Gaian world will consist of many small sovereign states, each with its own currency. Having your own currency gives maximum control over your economy.

Gaian Trade Organization

The Gaian Trade Organization replaces the WTO for member states. Sovereign control over all trade (e.g., tariff policy, product bans, most favored nation status) is necessary to prevent domestic-member products from being undercut by non-member imported products of lower environmental standards, as well as for protecting sovereign priorities and preferences.

In addition, controls on capital movement are necessary for the development of comparative advantage industries in developing countries and to protect small country equity and currency markets from speculative capital flows, and will in addition free up some currency reserves for more productive purposes.
