2. (2015 January-February) Book: Land – A New Paradigm

Martin Adams has found a publisher and restructured many aspects of his previous book, Sharing the Earth. The new book is titled Land – A New Paradigm for a Thriving World. Below is the book’s press release:

What if we lived in a world where everyone had enough? A world where everyone mattered and where people lived in harmony with nature? What if the solution to our economic, social, and ecological problems was right underneath our feet?

Land has been sought after throughout history. Even today, people struggle to get onto the property ladder; most view real estate as an important way to build wealth. Yet, as readers of this book will discover, the act of owning land—and our urge to profit from it—causes economic booms and busts, social and cultural decline, and environmental devastation.

Land: A New Paradigm for a Thriving World introduces a radically new economic model that promises a sustainable and abundant world for all. This book is for those who dream of a better world for themselves and for future generations.

Land is available for pre-order on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/Land-New-Paradigm-Thriving-World/dp/1583949208 or directly through the author’s website at: http://www.unitism.com

3. (2014 February) Book: Land: A Humanitarian Perspective

Martin Adams has found a nationwide publisher for his new book Land: A Humanitarian Perspective. In the following article, Martin explains the rationale behind the book.

“In theory, capitalism ought to provide a competitive free market. But we don’t have a free market because land is monopolized: the ownership of land creates what is called an entry monopoly. An entry monopoly occurs whenever a market is closed to new participants because overall supply can’t be increased; and since land is naturally limited for each location, the ownership of land creates an entry monopoly.”
