About the Author
James Robertson began his career in Whitehall, as the remaining British colonies came towards independence. Development plans for Mauritius and Seychelles introduced him to the UK Treasury and public policy-making on money. He founded the Inter-Bank Research Organisation (IBRO) for the big banks. As a writer and adviser on future economic, social and ecological change, he combined his earlier experience and a new interest in ecology, feminism, futures studies and the convivial society and small is beautiful ideas of Ivan Illich and E. F. Schumacher. James helped Jonathon Porritt and Paul Ekins to set up The Other Economic Summit (TOES), later the New Economics Foundation (nef). In 2003 James received a gold medal from the Pio Manzu Centre, an international institute for the in-depth study of the main economic and scientific aspects of the relationship between man and his environment."
