Dear Friends and Colleagues,
A Better World is Possible
Some of you will have seen my e-mail “At Last my new book is out”. Alas, this was premature. To cut a long story short, the book had to be re-edited. Now it’s back as paperback and E-Book form available from Amazon via http://www.brucenixon.com/betterworld.html or http://www.changemakers-books.com/index.php?id=99&p=1320
There’s a recent review in the Ecologist: http://www.theecologist.org/reviews/books/1218844/a_better_world_is_possible.html

As a friend says:
"It's a strange kind of economic system that over consumes natural resources, and yet leaves millions without jobs.

Ross Jackson, the Canadian author and activist who now lives in Denmark has just published "Occupy World Street" http://www.occupyworldstreet.org/ . His book moves us on from Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth about what a sustainable, steady state economy might look like to how it might actually be brought about internationally. It offers a well thought out strategy, given the entrenched addiction of the largest nations to the growth economy. It would start with a league of nations, already on the way like Denmark, Iceland and some Latin American countries.
It’s one of the most hopeful practical books I’ve read lately – hope is how we make big changes for the better happen!
