There is growing anxiety due to the feeling of being buffeted by economic forces that are not understood and beyond our control. Those forces are actually the logical outcomes of the design of the large systems affecting our lives: the money and banking system, the economic system, and the financial system. The very design of those systems is causing some of the largest problems we face as a society: increasing levels of debt, economic instability, concentration of wealth, loss of democracy, environmental and climate disruption. Essential Knowledge for Transition provides an understanding of those systems, shows how we can redesign them, and talks about alternatives being tried in the US and around the world. http:// www.ek4t.com
