Shepheard-Walwyn Ethical Economics Books

Rent Unmasked

Rent Unmasked explores the new economic paradigm that policy-makers need to solve global problems in the post-2008 era. With conventional economic theories discredited, the new model must equip governments with tools to re-stabilise societies in a dangerous world. Rent Unmasked explains why one paradigm only qualifies to serve this purpose: the dynamic model that reinstates time and space in economic theorising.

How our Economy Really Works – A Radical Reappraisal

– Why are so many trapped in poverty, when others are grossly well-off?
– Why are house prices continuously rising faster than inflation?
– Why do people so often find themselves in jobs that give them little sense of fulfilment?
– Why is a multi-national coffee shop franchise not actually making its money from coffee?
These questions have confronted the UK economy for decades without resolution by governments of the right or left. It is the failure of economics, the author argues.

The State of Freedom and Justice

No Debt, High Growth, Low Tax

Governments around the world are wrestling with the problems of enormous debts, low growth, high unemployment and a gap between the demands of public expenditure and what can be raised through taxation. This problem has been acute since the financial crisis, but has been a hallmark of western economies for decades.

Our Land, Our Rent, Our Jobs

The authors set out a proposal to unleash their country’s potential for growth in a way that benefits investors and the poorest by reforming taxation – a blueprint for other developing countries. The rapid development of Taiwan and South Korea in the 1950s and 1960s owed much to a similar, business-friendly tax reform.

From Here to Prosperity

Economic inequality has reached historic highs worldwide. Almost half the world’s wealth is now owned by just 1% of the population. Disparities in the distribution of wealth have grown far more extreme than disparities in income – and the gap continues to widen. This is the result of a broken ‘system’ and no amount of business-as-usual will solve it, the author argues.

The Traumatised Society

The author was the first to forecast (in 1997) the events that ruptured the global economy in 2008 by applying an analysis that exposes the fault lines in the structure of the market economy. Having correctly forecast the timing of the global crisis, the author now extends that same analysis to the future of the West…

The Fair Tax

The Fair Tax explains how a second massive transfer of wealth from the 99% to the 1% can happen again due to the ignorance of politicians, the hubris of the Department of Finance, and the continuing backroom influence of the developers and bankers. The authors clearly explain the real advantages of a Site Value Tax over a conventional property tax and convincingly show how easy it is to assess and implement.

The Natural Economy

Many doubt the existence of economic laws, but the once mighty Soviet Union collapsed because the grand theory on which it was based did not accord with the facts of economic life. It was unscientific.
