To hear this archived edition of Forthright Radio featuring Martin Adams discussing his book, LAND: A NEW PARADIGM FOR A THRIVING WORLD, click on this link.

“What if we lived in a world where everyone had enough? A world where everyone mattered, and where people lived in harmony with nature? What if the solution to our economic, social, and ecological problems was right underneath our feet? Land has been sought after throughout history. Even today, people struggle to get onto the property ladder; most view real estate as an important way to build wealth. Yet the institution of land ownership—and our urge to profit from land—causes economic booms and busts, social and cultural decline, and environmental devastation. Land: A New Paradigm for a Thriving World introduces a radically new economic model, that promises a sustainable and abundant world for all. It is for those who dream of a better world for themselves and for future generations.”
These are the words of social innovator, systems thinker, and community organizer, Martin Adams, who is executive director of Progress.org, and founder of the Middletown Community Land Trust in Lake County.  As a young adult, Martin Adams was groomed for a career in finance, but he opted not to pursue a career on Wall Street, and chose instead to dedicate his life to community enrichment. Through his non-profit work, he saw firsthand the extent to which our economic system causes human and ecological strife. So, he has devoted himself to the implementation of a new economic paradigm, that just might allow humanity to thrive in harmony with nature. His book Land: A New Paradigm for a Thriving World is the fruit of his years of research into a part of this economic model.
