Short-Changed!: How the rich and powerful extract wealth from the real economy and what WE can do about it (Paperback)JK Wright (author)
This immensely readable account of how we live and work identifies the fundamental flaw in our political economy. Quite simply, money has been misused since time immemorial. Money was only ever intended as a measurement system to facilitate the fair exchange of goods and services. Its use should be restricted to spending, saving, or giving away. However, we have all misguidedly accepted that one's personal wealth can be increased by using it to extract income from the work of other people. The truth is that it is work, not money, that drives our real economy.
SHORT-CHANGED! is not a dry explanation of economics; it is based on understandable common sense. This book will show you how:
• Money has been misused since before economists existed
• Work, not Money drives our real economy
• We live in a de-facto Plutocracy, not a real Democracy
• There is a better way of living, if we all ask the right questions and work together
