Important new book 

"After Capitalism - 

PROUT's vision for a new world"

by Dada Maheshvarananda

What people are saying about it

 Noam Chomsky - Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"Alternative visions are crucial at this moment in history. Prout's co-operative model of economic democracy, based on cardinal human values and sharing the resources of the planet for the welfare of everyone, deserves our serious consideration."

 Nicky Hager - New Zealand author.

"If, like me, you are hesitant about some spiritual aspects of Prout, please don't be put off this book. It is a fine book - thought provoking and fresh. Essentially it is about the kinds of values and principles that can provide the foundations of tomorrow's alternatives to the unhappy and destructive free market societies."

 Howard Zinn - best-selling author of People's History of the U.S.A. 

"After Capitalism is refreshingly original. It is spiritual and utopian while remaining grounded in reality. Its analysis is intelligent and its vision inspiring." 

 Leonardo Boff - Brazilian author and a founder of Liberation Theology

"Prout is very important to all who yearn for a liberation which starts from economics and opens to a totality of personal and social human existence."

"After Capitalism" asserts that capitalism contains the seeds of its own destruction, based as it is on greed, intense competition and the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few. In contrast, Prout provides a model of economic development grounded in universal values. Prout seeks to balance regional self-reliant economic development with ecological protection, and encourages creativity and innovation.

"After Capitalism" offers refreshingly new hope for a world without poverty, war and injustice. It is a practical, sustainable vision for future generations.
