"…The capabilities of civilization to build a better future are rich but terribly inefficient. Improving efficiency requires seeing the status of the whole and its parts as objectively as possible...

For more information, see the Press release, Executive Summary, and Website. Copies of the much anticipated report will be available from the SA Node.
