The third chapter addresses the changing world of work in the face of the social transformations resulting from Artificial Intelligence.
Since the industrial revolution, wages have provided the mechanism by which human production has been rationed out. That is except for the millions of people excluded from the market economy and marginalised into gridding poverty. Now in the 21st century, as income inequality widens and monopoly power makes a few people staggering rich, we need to re-examine the fundamental relationship between work and reward. In the meantime, we need a Universal Basic Income

During the Pandemic, “How to Make Democracy Work” was published; the book takes a position on many issues.
The book takes a stand on Drug regulation and, for the first time, puts a monetary cost on the current punitive campaign. It also proposes changes to the way Big Pharma is regulated.
Declining and low levels of citizen engagement in public life sparked the creation of Hive, which, for the first time, offers a new model for engagement and overcoming social isolation.

The book “How to Make Democracy Work” introduces the New Campaign Method (NCM), which provides Civil Society and all our citizens a road map for effective change. The NCM offers a tantalising possibility of creating a genuinely participatory and Dynamic Democrac

2025 in the UK. It includes three headline proposals to help us achieve the target.
1)Switching to public ownership of electric cars. The public provision of mobility services can reduce the car fleet by 80% and provide the best new vehicles for everyone to drive.
2)The rapid development of precision fermentation (PF) to create food. PF can make the farming of animal fodder obsolete and enable us to return large swathes of land back to nature.
3) The heating of our building using heat pump technology.

This section of the website will highlight important issues being debated in public. It will open up a deliberative exchange of views using our wiki and offer a way to move towards consensus.
We plan to develop ideas in our Wiki Space where all contributions are welcome.
Once ideas have been matured to a stage where it looks possible to suggest a change for the better then we will post under the 5 headings.
If car owners switched over to electric vehicles powered by renewable energy, the UK greenhouse gas emissions could be cut by 23%. This proposal is predicated on the assumption that the electricity to power EVs would be drawn from renewable sources. The increase in demand for clean electricity...
Precision Fermentation (PF) is possibly the most promising scientific development that could help address the challenge of Climate Change. Solar Foods is one of the companies pioneering PF and making new foods in the lab, not the farmer's field. Imagine if animal fodder could be produced without...
A Toilet Seat - as a health diagnostic tool. A toilet seat is in development at Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York, which is equipped to measure the electrical and mechanical activity of the heart and can monitor heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygenation levels, and...
One of the high points during research for “How to Make Democracy Work” was coming across the work of Robert Sapolsky. Robert Sapolsky is a Stanford neuroscientist and primatologist. In Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, Sapolsky works through how a stress response that evolved for fast,...
The development of Artificial Intelligence is hotting up. It's central to many policy issues we will face in the near future. The American Journalist Ezra Klein has recently interviewed several leading thinkers working in this area, none more interesting than Sam Altman, author of Moore's Law...
