The global economy coupled with internet technology is changing the way we live. Governments have handed over control of our nation states to the financial and corporate sector. Economic power is gradually shifting form the West to Asia while the European Union is on the brink of collapse. Political and corporate greed and corruption and tax evasion are strangling nation states. The financial crisis and austerity measures are transforming our societies. Inequality in the world is leading to mass migration to escape poverty and despotic governments. Mass illegal immigration is threatening our security and stability while religious and ethnic conflicts pose a risk to peace.
These are the major issues confronting a world in which there is a growing lack of ethics and morality. These are the issues which this book attempts to deal with. It is a wake up call to everybody concerned about the future of the planet.
