4.0 out of 5 stars Starts the conversation December 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rob has hit the nail on the issue of finance and credit and raises some excellent historical examples that we might look at in applying to the revamping of the current credit and banking system.

The book's only failure is that it only scratches the surface. So this, I would prefer to call it a manifesto, forms an excellent basis of starting the conversation but the topic needs to be drawn out much further. This is the type of book that you would want to bring to a group - who would then take action on creating something new.

Rob is easily able to bring personal knowledge into this topic with the many years he served as a high-level employee of a major bank.

I was very fortunate to have met Rob thru an entrepreneurial mentoring program and am very grateful for his advice on a New Media project I was doing. It was most encouraging to meet someone who actually understood what I was talking about and who in fact, had a much deeper understanding of what I was trying to do than I did. Rob's encouragement and support came a crucial time and I find as I read more of his writings that his analysis of the "changing paradigm" is helping me comprehend the modern world. I found both 'You don't Need a Job' and 'You don't Need a Banker' enlightening as it me help define something I was feeling intuitively and I look forward to the rest of this wonderful project.

More About the Author

I believe that a sustainable future depends on moving away from highly centralized systems to distributed systems based on the rules of natural networks. The internet itself is a model of such a system. I am writing a series of maybe 20 short books on this topic. I start with the central issue of Jobs and then will move onto Credit, Health and Education. I am trying to offer you a guide to a future that is here but maybe hidden by our habits and experience in the old system.

For part of my life I was a very conventional person. I attended very traditional English Schools and went into Investment Banking as a career.

But much of my early years were spent in nature. As a boy I lived in Ghana and spent most of my time on the beach. Most of my vacations were spent in rural New Brunswick. My teen years were spent in rural England. As a teenager I spent a year as a diamond prospector in Botswana. I lived and worked in the bush under canvas exposed to the majesty of how life must have been lived before civilization. The natural world had seeped into my core.

But I left all that behind and had a career. I was the typical institutional person. But in my 40's I began to feel that something was wrong. Of course I felt that I was the one with the problem, not the system that I had spent my life in. But after much anguish, I woke up. For the last 20 years I have devoted my life to understanding the shift from machine to nature that we are living through. These booklets are a summary of all that I have learned.
