Billions of dollars have been poured into the global banking system in a
frenetic attempt at stabilization. Yet the same urgency is strangely
missing in dealing with world poverty and the ecological and
environmental crisis.

 

In a no-holds-barred analysis of our desperate historical situation,
Professor Hussey, traces its origin to the ideology spawned by the
physics of Sir Isaac Newton which culminated in Thatcher's spine
chilling utterance '...and you know, here is no such thing as 

society, there are individual men and women, and families'.

 

Hussey argues that the current model does not need adjusting, it needs
replacing. With a confidence in the ideological consequences of the less
individualistic and more relationship based new physics - a physics that
is more in line with the social relationship basis of our humanity - a
new economic model is proposed. A model which is unashamedly based on
the universal democratic ideals of the 200 year old revolution in - of
all places - Haiti!
