GINI: Capitalism, Cryptocurrencies & the Battle for Human Rights
HUMANITY EVOLVES AT THE SPEED OF JUSTICE. This is a book about justice and the technologies, systems, and public policies that are necessary to achieve justice. Humanity’s technology is evolving at an exponential rate, but our laws and cultural norms evolve at the speed of justice. The speed of justice is dictated by those who have the most financial and political power in a society. The more concentrated the power, the slower the justice. Indeed, justice can only exist when economic and political systems produce outcomes that maximize health, wealth and political freedom for the largest number of humans. By that measure, the speed of justice in many countries on Earth today is excruciatingly slow. In fact, it’s not only slow; it’s accelerating in reverse.
PRIVACY IS A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT. All human rights depend on the right to privacy. Democracy cannot exist without protecting the human right to privacy because politicians and the corporations that finance their political campaigns inevitably use their wealth and power to spy, manipulate, and sabotage their political opponents. These assaults on democracy and human liberty are only possible when politicians and corporations are given the power to violate our human right to privacy. Gini protects your right to privacy.
THE ESSENCE OF A BROKEN SYSTEM. With such enormous economic and political power concentrated in the hands of less than 0.01% of Earth’s corporations and less than 0.0000001% of Earth’s human population, is it any surprise that economic and political systems worldwide are imploding, humanitarian crises are exploding, and 80% of the global population lives in poverty? Is this the free market that we learn about in college Economics textbooks and on mainstream financial news programs? All the problems discussed throughout this book are only possible when gigantic corporations and governments collude against the best interests of their citizens. This is the essence of broken capitalism and broken democracy on Earth today. Gini provides solutions.
