The world is a mess. The privileged few prosper. The masses suffer. And everyone feels spiritually empty. Most people would blame capitalism, racism, or some other ""ism"". But according to Sharif M. Abdullah, the problem is not ideology. It's exclusivity -- our desire to stay separate from other people. In Creating a World That Works for All, Abdullah takes a look at the mess we live in -- and presents a way out. To restore balance to the earth and build community, he says, people must stop blaming others, embrace inclusivity, and become ""menders"". He outlines three simple tests -- for ""enoughness"", exchangeability, and common benefit -- to guide people as they transform themselves and the world.

Synopsis:

Shows how we can create a world that works for all by rejecting the practice of exclusivity in favour of inclusivity. The text uses numerous insightful stories to illustrate how and why things don't work and how they can be made to work if we change our thinking and our society.
