The Economics of Peace: Freedom, the Golden Rule, and the Broadening of Prosperity


From the Arab Spring to the Occupy and Tea Party movements, the “What now?” solution to economic disparity and power politics has been largely unarticulated. This work details how the Golden Rule ethic and a technology-driven global consciousness are causing epic shifts in our economic and governing systems. The evolution from nation-state capitalism to a collaborative economy with judicial governance is proving that prosperity is compatible with peace. With ten case studies of successful “Golden Rule” organizations and an innovative study of the reciprocal ethic, this book provides accessible, thought-provoking analysis of rapid worldwide change and forecasts a future of freedom, purpose and hope.
