Dr Liz Elliott is a founding member of Turning Point Talks.
Here is an introduction to her latest book ‘A New Way Now – How we can afford a happier future, and can’t afford not to’, which you can purchase on Amazon.

How to create a New Way Now, a sustainable future? Financial collapse and ecological pressure will soon demand that we practice a different sort of social and economic life!

Don’t despair! Despite rising population, climate change and ecological damage, it is still possible, is affordable, and we can then live more relaxed, abundant and happier lives.

This is a breakthrough book, a rare combination of ecology, community and financial understanding, with cartoons!

When finance is regulated again and made less power hungry, we can liberate vast funds for good, for healthy countryside and vibrant townships. We can minimize the inevitable climate change dramas and conserve resources and reduce hours of work a week. Stress-less!

This is an optimistic message, a future younger people can imagine. It is do-able.

Already, in villages, cooperatives and in group living and small business cooperatives everywhere, millions of people are developing models of the future. By linking these experiments with liberated finance we can create a happier, sustainable future. A New Way Now!
