After Fossil Fuels: The Next Economy

From: Systemic Crisis and Systemic Change in the United States in the 21st Century

"The time has come to think boldly about what is required to deal with the systemic difficulties we are facing. It is time to debate what it will really take to move in a new direction capable of producing sustainable, lasting, and more democratic social, economic, and ecological outcomes. The current system is designed to serve a financial elite and to enable the extraction of maximum financial wealth from the economy. We need a new system, designed with human and planetary flourishing as its core aim. Service to human and ecological welfare must be core values, built into the design of our economic institutions."
