    This paper falls short of what it's stated goals are And it hardly presents a new system Instead it seeks to give people tips on how best to navigate the current system in order to bring about a ecologically conscious future It has a few uotes which are gems Prosperity today is an empty promise if it consistently undermines the conditions on which prosperity tomorrow depends and may be well targeted to economists or politicians but seems ineffectual because its solutions are based on the good will of politicians The authors are good writers but not good visionariesAmong the hot points areDiscusses how people are estranged from their labor by the market's concentration on productivity Proposes reducedshared working hours to deal with this but does not call for a living wage Specifically caretaking professions arts craft professions are highlighted Even to speak of reducing the time involved in caretaking is to misunderstand its value Calls for people to personally invest in green companies or green technologies because these are a higher risk lower return investment so they typically won't be funded through commercial channelsCalls for people to invest in local community endeavors health education parks social care Says it should be easier for people to invest locally but does not explain how this could be accomplishedDiscusses the need for balance between private public local and national economic performance Proposes that countries buy from foreign regions as much as they sell to foreign regions with a view to social justice and shared prosperity No motivation for this is proposedPosits greater community involvement and investment as a major solution Holds up an example in Petersborough Canada where a local currency has been established for local goods and services A uick look at the website for this program shows that it is essentially a Craigslist where people trade clothing and their homemade food and beauty products not a successful exampleThe gist of the proposal is best summed up in the authors' own words All of this supposes of course that the government itself is willing and able to act in pursuit of change In the absence of such willingness there may be little that communities acting on their own can do to resolve some of the institutional roadblocks
