    The People We Can Be: Or How To Be 500 Better Off, Build A Fairer Society And A Better Planet
    Alexander Bell - Paperback - Luath Press
    The world we live in is changing. Never have humans known so much, been so healthy or so rich. Yet we are threatened by financial crashes, democratic decline, climate change and ill-health. We live in contradictory times. Our public debate doesn't seem to represent these forces. Voters in Scotland and the UK face two referendums. In September 2014 Scots will vote on 'independence' while in 2017 the UK may vote on 'independence' from the European Union. Everyone involved in these arguments accepts there is no such things as 'independence' in the modern world. This book tries to work out how these elections are relevant to our needs.
