We have come to the end of an era and do not know where to turn. We are stumbling from crisis to crisis and the only available solutions seem to be more of the same. More competition for dwindling natural resource; More conflict in a world of nationalistic politics; More consumption in the deluded hope of finding happiness in material possessions; More individualism and selfishness; More continued neglect for the environment we live in; More of the illusion that certainty and right and wrong exist in the context of political;, economical, religious and social ideologies.
Yet, despite a myriad of world congresses and summits in June 2012, we seem as far as ever from tackling the fundamental issues that are facing us today. The EU Summit and the UN +20 Earth Summit in Brazil have done nothing to resolve these issues and we will be left with more of the same, driving us to the edge in economic, political, ecological and social terms. More of the same is simply not an option.
A Different Future explores the possible nature of an alternate future; a future based on a shared vision founded on co-operation and contribution that generates significantly different attitudes and outcomes beyond sterile economic indicators. A Different Future, the debut book from Andrew A. Crest, provides a compelling and complete analysis of the perilous world situation we find ourselves in and offers the prospects of a brighter and more prosperous future.
Somersham, Cambridgeshire, UK, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 – A unique, complete and compelling analysis of the complex and unsustainable nature of the world crises we are facing today. More of the same is not an option and A Different Future explores the basis of an alternate vision, approach and actions that have the potential of shaping a brighter and sustainable future.
A Different Future challenges the more of the same idiocy of the monolithic world of economic theory and economic growth head on, and gives a graphic and informative account of the world we live in today; a world of complex and dynamic relationships and interplays between social, political, economic, ecological, scientific and religious dimensions. The consequences of the world we live in today are clear to see; political conflict, economic recession; social unrest; religious bigotry and extremism; the pursuit of science for sciences sake and the prospects of irreversible climate change.
A Different Future spells out the current situation of our world in no uncertain terms and demonstrates that, at every level, competition and consumption have driven us to the edge of a global political, social and economic cliff. More of the same will send us over the edge and we need to find alternate solutions to the very real challenges we face today in order to have a more positive future to look forward to..
A Different Future, the debut book from Andrew A. Crest, provides a compelling and complete analysis of the perilous world situation we find ourselves in and offers the prospects of a brighter and more prosperous future. A Different Future explores a vision for the global and interconnected world in which we live today; a vision based on Cooperation and Contribution that is better placed to resolve global issues such as resource shortages and climate change; a world of less poverty and greater equality; a world where we measure progress through a set of balanced measures that reflect the true reality of prosperity, rather than the current crude indicators of economic growth. A Different Future delivers a truly exhilarating tale, blending the best of Economics, finance, business and management genre. Frightening on many levels, this assured addition to the Economics, finance, business and management genre will delight readers of all ages. Crest crafts an immersive world of detail that will grip readers from cover to cover.
