sustainable financial/economic/governance systems
  • Vote Up0Vote Down November 2012
    Hello Factor e Farm. I would like to introduce myself and my work. I am the author of "Creating Sustainable Societies: The Rebirth of Democracy and Local Economies," and founder of the Principled Societies Project. The Principled Societies Project is a science-based effort to design and test pioneering systems of finance, economics, and governance that improve well-being and speed the transition to a sustainable society. The goal is to create fully functional, metro-scale pilot trials in which the impacts of new systems can be assessed.

    I invite you to read the book, it is available as a free PDF on our website. We both share an interest in creating new systems, and perhaps there will be information in my book that will be useful to you. The address is:

    Best wishes,
    John Boik

Howdy, Stranger!
