This book describes three errors in fundamental principles; small in the short term but substantial in the long term, which are at the heart of Neoliberal economics and are being broadly accepted as a result. While it was safe to ignore the problems introduced by these flaws in the distant past, the effects of all three are being accelerated by the same factor - technology. The devistation cause by ill-advised actions has been all too obvious, but never before linked to a single source. That source turns out to be Neoliberal ideas that have become articles of faith throughout the economics profession.This book is not a rehash of talking points from other critics.

These failures, though, are only the precusors to an emerging issue that will, for better or worse, transform civilazation.Any hope for a constructive resolution of the questions at hand rests on solving an existing problem. Democracy is, in the form in use, deeply flawed. Peolpe chosen for office represent only the extremes of the populace. The cause is the mechanics of how we vote and was recognized when democracy emerged as a source of bias. The reason for the skewed results is explored; the usual suspects turn out to only be symptoms.Our hope rests on the vitality of democracy and free markets. The elephant in the room is that these do not operate in the manner that we thought. What we have is democracy and a free market in name only. If we do not come up with the real deals, our future is dark....
