The political problem of mankind is to combine three things: economic efficiency, social justice and individual liberty. ― John Maynard Keynes
This will shortly be developed into a private site reserved for the information and use of collaborating colleagues and aimed at charting progress in the author’s push over 2014 to lay the base for a major book on this theme. The book project is supported by a series of collaborative assignments, workshops, university seminars, presentations, journal articles, media interviews and city missions which will be used to test and deepen the ideas which constitute the key lynchpins of this ambitious project.
What you find here today is monstrously rough, but below you have the first pages of a working “Contents” of the draft now underway. Intended at this point to swap information and ideas with friends only, it can be expected to expand and evolve considerably as the project pushes ahead.
In the meantime you can find help by way of introduction to the project in the menu section above, START HERE.
And if you have questions of suggestions, you will find full contact information in the above menu item, CONTACT.
