Praise for the book
"Many writers have inventoried the unfolding disasters that threaten the human future. Ross Jackson is one of the very few who goes on to spell out a visionary, yet practical, program of sufficient ambition to achieve a positive future. This is a truly important book."
-David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy
Quotes from the Book
The Gaian Clearing Union is an institution to regulate and settle international trade without the use of any national currencies, based on a model originally proposed by John Maynard Keynes. The Clearing Union will reduce the likelihood of new financial crises, free up substantial funds now tied up in foreign exchange reserves, and resolve the financial instabilities that inevitably arise when a national currency (currently the U.S. dollar) is used as the primary source of liquidity and foreign reserves.
