Your Next Government?
Your Next Government? From the Nation State to Stateless Nations (Cambridge Univ. Press 2018) reveals how governments across the globe have been evolving like dinosaurs into birds. Bit by bit, across the globe, nation states have been breaking into smaller, more agile special jurisdictions. These range from tiny to huge, including common-interest developments, special economic zones, and proprietary cites. Private providers often provide these new communities with the kinds of services that political providers once monopolized, inspiring competition and driving efficiency in governing services. These trends suggest that new networks of special jurisdictions will soon surpass nation states in the same way that networks of computers replaced lumbering mainframes. In this engaging and original work, Tom W. Bell describes the quiet revolution transforming governments from the bottom up, inside-out, worldwide, and how it can bring the world more freedom, peace, and prosperity.
