Product Description


Western society has faced many challenges in the last few years. Economies have come under extreme pressure, and so have governments and business, with obvious knock-on effects for wider society. The battle between regulation and the free market has never been fiercer. Looking for guidance and sustainable ways to get society back on track, Rudolf Isler considers ideas from unorthodox thinkers including Silvio Gesell, Henry George, and Rudolf Steiner, exploring everything from regional currencies to land reform. Steiner proposed a threefold social structure which Isler teases out, exploring the implications of this approach for our modern societies. He finds a surprisingly practical system with potential for immediate implementation in small steps, along with longer-term rethinking. This is a down-to-earth, open-minded book which helps us explore viable alternatives to the current situation.
