It examines root causes of major social problems and shows how to resolve the problems by dealing with their basic causes. See 'Press Notices'.

    Report of study undertaken to find out why people have to struggle throughout their adult lives, in all countries and organisations, at all levels, to maintain and improve their standard of living and quality of life. We know what people are struggling to achieve and the study investigates why people have to struggle by looking at what they are struggling against.

  • CORRUPTED ECONOMICS AND MISGUIDED EXPERTS

Describes how people's massive savings are placed under the control of others.

    Exposes what people are struggling against, the secretive manipulations of bureaucracy, oppressors and exploiters.

    Shows that underlying Judaism, Christianity and Islam are the same fundamental benevolent and egalitarian social laws and social system which also underlie Democracy, Socialism and Communism.

    Covers dominance and confrontation within the family and in the working environment.

    Shows how the media are being used for 'social engineering', for turning the struggle of the working population into 'self-defeating' directions, into scoring 'own goals'.

  • SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, PROFITS AND SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY
    Incidents, disasters and catastrophes are here put together as individual case studies and reviewed as a whole.

    A short statement which describes the system by which a company's majority shareholders decide policy and control the company.

  • THE RIGHT TO STRIKE
    Discusses and defines the right to strike, the extent to which people can strike and what this implies.

    Kibbutzim are successful co-operative communities now experiencing both practical and ideological problems. So the study looks at what is taking place to find reasons for success and causes of problems.

  • BUILDING SOCIETIES
    Building societies are owned by their members for the benefit of both saving and borrowing members. But building societies have been merging, have been taken over by banks and have turned themselves into banks. This study looks at what is taking place, and why.
