CIVIL ENDOWMENT, An Idea Whose Time Is Now

David McCarthy is a scholar, activist and writer who spent many years writing Civil Endowment, a revolutionary handbook on how to save the planet. To say that I recommend it would be an understatement. It is essentially that treasure for which we have been waiting, an outline on how to change the course of our thinking and therefore our lives that should be a mainstay in classrooms as well as the subject of critical panels in economics, history, and social justice everywhere.

In Civil Endowment, McCarthy outlines a simple and profound economic idea that is based on the understanding that the main challenges of our day--wealth inequality, social distress, ecological imbalances--require a rethinking of economics. McCarthy proposes an economics of compassion that would entail a decentralized system of permanent capital endowments invested for the common good of all humanity, an idea, long coming, that could benefit humanity on every level.

Civil Endowment is a book to be read and reread and shared with everyone you know.
