Financing the global sharing economy (Executive summary)
£0.00

Humanity is facing a global emergency. Extreme poverty and climate-related disasters are taking the lives of over 40,000 people every single day and severely affecting many millions of others. At the same time, dramatic cutbacks in public spending on social welfare and essential services are making it increasingly difficult for many families to meet their basic needs, even in the richest nations. This report demonstrates how governments could mobilise over $2.8 trillion every year to strengthen sharing economies across the world and reverse policies of economic austerity, prevent life-threatening deprivation and mitigate the human impacts of climate change.

Megaslumming
£5.00

Kibera has become one of the most infamous slums in the world. But the visiting pop stars, politicians and Western journalists seldom explain how the enduring poverty and inequality in Kenya is intimately related to an unjust economic system that connects our different worlds. In a mix of travel writing, history and political narrative, Megaslumming vividly describes life in the slum through the eyes of its different residents. Written as a lucid introduction to global justice issues, the book ultimately raises serious questions about the current direction of international development and points the way to a more equitable and inclusive future world.
