Economics as if Soil & Health Matters deals with the crucial connection between a fertile soil and the preservation of public health. It argues the case for decentralization of urban areas and the need for a participatory democracy and confederal political structures, in an age when the urban sprawl of the modern world threatens the vital balance between town and country as well as the very stability of the Earth's ecosystems. Several reform suggestions are described which would enable people to achieve the goal of a sustainable future in which public health and democratic standards are maintained at the highest possible level. Despite the huge challenges confronting humanity in the 21st century, the author upholds an optimistic view of humanity's ability to overcome the present and forthcoming obstacles to achieving a viable future.
