Neither our current regime of individual property rights, nor rigid state ownership, have proven very effective in producing prosperous, just, environmentally flourishing societies. But what if there was another kind of property that, if added to markets, could transform them, our society and our planet? In this provocative book, Peter Barnes argues for injecting markets with a type of property that isn’t mine, yours or the state’s, but ours jointly — literally held in trust for each of us, living and yet-to-be born.
