Gardenworld Politics is a strategic guiding vision for integrated responses to issues of turbulence — climate crisis, inequality, and governance, to make for an attractive society.

So much writing now is critical of the economy and government. These institutions are not delivering. Economy should be arranging mankind’s interaction with the world to produce a decent life for everyone and governments should be acting to cope with the major emerging problems of our time – but they are not.
