Releasing Individual Energy

In the turmoil of major changes, the individual becomes left behind in states that have placed economic rigidities before the good of their people. This has to change unless those in power become destroyed by angry and frustrated individuals. We are now on the threshold of being engulfed by powerful and unseen forces that can no longer be contained. The Politics of Restoring Individual Dignity describes these forces, their implication and what needs to be done. This memorandum is aimed at those committed to act constructively.

The Global Recovery Manual

The world is suffering some of the greatest natural and man-made imbalances ever, creating a watershed in global affairs that has not been present for centuries. These are driving many people in the Western World into a sense of despair that is endangering their jobs, homes, savings and pensions. At the same time their elected representatives either do not seem to understand or even care what to do next. Like the Roman emperors towards the end of the Empire, they meet with great ceremony and make pronouncements – yet nothing happens. It is called ‘kicking the can down the road’ in the vain hope that the danger will either go away or someone else will take responsibility.

How America Recovered

Things are starting to improve in the USA after great climatic and economic upheavals left millions destitute in the northern hemisphere and nations in disarray. However good things have happened under the direction of wise politicians; there is also the release of individual energy and the advent of new ideas.

How Britain Recovered

After great climatic and economic upheavals particularly in Europe left millions destitute in the northern hemisphere and nations in disarray. This has forced politicians in Britain to take radical remedial action to reduce the size of government and to help those without work to find a new life. The nation is one of the leaders of the Digital Age that has generated many new ways of thinking and working.

Two Recoveries & Two Re-orientations

The presidents of France and Italy have requested the English philosopher John Locke and Guiseppe Garibaldi respectively help them with reconstructing their countries. In Russia, the president is asking Peter the Great help with re-orientating his country and in China, the chairman is paid a visit by Ghengis Khan.

Water - The Final Resource

Up to the turn of the century the world's population had grown with water abundant in most developing countries.

Then everything changed.

Ocean oscillations (which affect the weather patterns) have altered, leading to droughts in areas that were expecting rain, and flooding for those previously anticipating arid conditions. The result is that around a fifth of the world's population will receive much less rain than expected.

About the Author

William Houston joined the Royal Navy at the end of the Second World War and specialised in weapons serving in the Mediterranean and Eastern theatres. On leaving the service he qualified as a chartered engineer and in administration before starting on a business career ending up as a corporate recovery specialist either as a chief executive, chairman or director of a wide range of industrial and commercial concerns. For ten years he was the industrial advisor to a merchant bank before starting a new career in writing; his first book being Avoiding Adversity advising managers on maintaining solvency before the deep recession of the early 1990s. He then became interested in the cycles of history, climate, economics, warfare, disease and so on and wrote Riding the Business Cycle in 1995. His most recent books have been Future Storm and Water: the Final Resource, both co-authored with Robin Griffiths, a noted technical analyst and investor. Credit and Conflict started as a cyclical reflection on the 2008 crisis but then evolved into manual of recovery based on historical precedence with the sub-title Riding the Immense Forces of Change into the Digital Era.
