    Ross's Books

    Gaian Economics

    Living Well within Planetary Limits

    Gaian Economics is the second volume in the Four Keys to Sustainable Communities series and explores how we can develop healthy and abundant societies in harmony with our finite planetary resources. The editors address how to reduce our consumption to levels that enable natural systems to self-regenerate and to do so in ways that permit a high quality of life so that we can all live well and live within our means.

    Occupy World Street

    A Global Roadmap for Radical Economic and Political Reform

    This work is the end result of forty years of looking for solutions to global problems like overpopulation, unsustainable growth, ecosystem overload, species extinction, exploitation of the developing countries, growing inequality, global injustice, and, more recently, global warming and peak oil. This book asks, "Where are the leverage points that can break the logjam and create real solutions that could lead to a radically different kind of global society?"
