Inhaltsangabe: Could these times of uncertainty and economic instability herald the onset of a long prophesied great new era? Could a world now ruled by super-rich investors and multi-national corporations, seeking maximum profits and growth, give way to a more idyllic and just civilization? Could control of our society and economy be regained by communities working together to create a world devoid of poverty, hunger, and homelessness? Michael Garajan believes that we are at the threshold to such a Community Age that millions have dreamed of for centuries. Strengthened by a 1999 revelation that foretold of today's economic problems and their solutions, Garajan draws a simple road map to the Community Age. He details how a group of optimistic believers has already established the foundation of a regional, community controlled economic system in Western Massachusetts that can easily be replicated in many other areas to connect and empower communities around the world. As a catalyst for sweeping economic and social change, this system now enjoys the support of local and federal elected officials, clergy, community members, economists, educators, entrepreneurs, labor leaders, students, and the young. If you are among those who dare to believe that great things are possible, this book is a "must read" that is convincing, practical, and uplifting. For those who are ready to step forward to a brighter future, Garajan declares, "The Community Age is ours if we want it. It is ours for the taking!"
Über den Autor: In 1964, when Michael Garajan Garjian left the farm for the university, his dream was to become an inventor. From 1969 to 1999, he was granted nine worldwide patents and employed more than four hundred people in his companies manufacturing and distributing his inventions globally. In 1999, after concluding his career as a commercial entrepreneur to become a social entrepreneur, he helped low income entrepreneurs launch more than sixty small businesses. His office was credited by a major business journal as one of the three most significant catalysts in the economic renaissance of the city of Easthampton, Massachusetts. Garajan worked with the Alliance to Develop Power, a group of ten thousand very low income individuals occupying tenant owned apartment complexes throughout Western Massachusetts. He helped them form a worker owned coop to provide landscape and painting services to their properties and worked with tenant organizations to help them understand how to use their $40,000,000 in financial power to achieve their social goals. As a consultant to sustainable energy companies, he worked closely with the EPA, Department of Environmental Protection, state legislators, and leaders of a major US city to develop programs relating to renewable fuels. Garajan is a principal in several companies involved in sustainable energy and agriculture, with a focus on advanced bio fuels, wind power, and indoor agriculture. He sits on the board of directors of several non-profit and for-profit private or publicly traded corporations. On January 1, 2000, as the result of a personal epiphany, Garajan founded e2m.org to establish e2m, an economic model for millennium 2000 which, as a sustainable free market economic system, is based on an investment goal of adequate profits and sustainable growth for the common good. A pilot E2M Economic Community has now been established in Western Massachusetts and enjoys the support of local and federal elected officials, economists, educators, clergy, labor leaders, entrepreneurs, students, and community members. As the author of "The Community Age", he offers the reader a detailed road map on how to use the E2M Economic Model to open the doors to a new economic age, the Community Age, where a network of benevolent, decentralized, sustainable, regional economic communities can become the dominant financial power that determines the destiny of our society and planet.
