The Sustainable State: The Future of Government, Economy, and Society by Chandran Nair
The free-market, limited-government development model has been an ecological and social disaster for the developing world. Sustainable and equitable development is possible only with the active involvement of a strong central state that can guide the economy, protect the environment, and prioritize meeting its people's basic needs.
In this sure-to-be-controversial book, Chandran Nair shows that the market-dominated model followed by the industrialized West is simply not scalable. The United States alone, with less than 5 percent of the world's population, consumes nearly a quarter of its resources. If countries in Asia, where 60 percent of the world's population lives, try to follow the Western lead, the results will be calamitous.

The Third Dimension
A “3D” rainforest produces 200 tons of biomass per acre per year. The best harvests from our “2D” flatland farms yield 4 tons per acre per year. That’s the promise of The Third Dimension. If we use the space, and resources available, we can grow an abundance of food and fuel. It is possible to feed 10, or even 12 billion people on planet earth with healthy and tasty food without destroying the environment. In fact, in the process, we can restore much damage done, put nature back on its evolutionary path, generate millions of jobs, and rebuild communities.
