Is there something in human nature that gives rise to our continuing lack of social progress? An analysis of how the ideas of the great classical economists/philosophers were selectively applied to preserve privilege and power. How can ordinary people take control of their lives and communities?

The historical separation of economic thought and moral philosophy is breached in this interdisciplinary examination of how all nations must work together to progress toward a more just, inclusive, and sustainable global community. Economic justice is presented as a key measure of social progress, such that the ethical context of economic matters enforces the implementation of a new social order that uses capitalist principles for inclusive goals. The full spectrum of collective and individual thought is discussed, including the obstacles to social change that are experienced on personal levels of perception and psychology.
