If you are in the 99% - and there is a 99% chance that you are - then you are one of the first generation who can expect to be poorer than their parents, even as the economy continues to grow. and you could be a lot poorer, if we continue as we are going, the civilisation will not last until 2050.
This book shows what we, the 99%, can do to end mass impoverishment and build a society worth living in: an age of abundance in which everyone benefits.
