"Maybe we have not yet traveled far enough along the road to democracy." This book shows the road toward a democracy which supports it's citizens in the pursuit of genuine prosperity.
A prosperity measured by the abundance of a person's work, service, happiness, relationships, creativity and health. Jackson demonstrates the fallacy of measuring a person's worth by their material value or collection of things and gives us guidelines for designing a better future.
If you've ever wondered why you feel so empty after a shopping trip, or why your wallet never seems to have enough cash, or how it happened that our elders are shuffled aside to long term care homes without sufficient resources to keep them safe, comfortable and healthy, this book has some answers.
Read it and be empowered to make, and demand, changes so we can all thrive in the future.
