About the Book
Problems can't be solved without problem solvers!  Seems like an obvious statement but governments regularly put up barriers preventing the solutions economy from emerging.  

This timely book explores what social enterprises, social entrepreneurs, and the small farm movement have to offer up against society's most stubborn problems - like climate change, Aboriginal unemployment, costly incarceration and escalating health care costs.  

Underneath it all is an emerging radical transformation of the role of government and the political spectrum as we know it.
