Future Money free pdf Future Money explains in plain language and convincing detail how our money system is propelling us toward the self-destruction of our species - and what we should do about it. Our present money system frustrates the well-meaning efforts of active citizens, NGOs and governments to deal with our present ills and problems - including worldwide poverty, environmental destruction, social injustice, economic inefficiency and political unrest and violence within and between nations. Failure to reform the world's money system urgently and radically - that is, from its roots up - could bring disaster for human civilisation before the end of this century. Future Money shows clearly how our money system operates and how it could be reformed so that it acts for the benefit of people and society rather than the opposite, and describes the obstacles that currently prevent that reform. The world's financial experts and leaders in politics, government and business, and most mainstream academic and media commentators, have demonstrated that they are not yet able or willing to diagnose and treat the profound and pervasive problems that are directly caused by the money system. Future Money speaks explicitly to active, independent-minded citizens, including young people, with the hope that it will help them to understand why people committed to careers in almost every important walk of life today find it difficult to recognise the problem and grasp the nettle. It shows why we have to take the initiative now, and urgently, to get the issue on to mainstream agendas worldwide.

About James Robertson

James Robertson grew up in Scotland and Yorkshire, and then studied classics, history and philosophy at Oxford. In the 1950s he worked in the Colonial Office, as the remaining British colonies came towards independence. Development plans for Mauritius and Seychelles introduced him to the UK Treasury and public policy-making on money. Three years in the Cabinet Office led to his first book, Reform of British Central Government (1971). James then worked setting up the Inter-Bank Research Organisation (IBRO) for the big banks. As a writer and adviser on future economic, social and ecological change, he combined his earlier experience and a new interest in ecology, feminism, futures studies and the 'convivial society' and 'small is beautiful' ideas of Ivan Illich and E. F. Schumacher. His book The Sane Alternative followed in 1978. Then in 1983 James helped Jonathon Porritt and Paul Ekins to set up The Other Economic Summit (TOES), later the New Economics Foundation (nef). James has worked and lectured for many organisations and people, including the World Health Organisation and the European Commission. In 2003 James received a gold medal from the Pio Manzu Centre, an international institute for the in-depth study of the main economic and scientific aspects of the relationship between man and his environment. Its Scientific Committee, whose President is Mikhail Gorbachev, called James "an outstanding example of a modern thinker at the service of society". www.jamesrobertson.com
