First and foremost: It is best to read the novel first, THEN tackle the articles. Links will be added to each chapter and revised, as more articles are moved over from the other site.
The articles further explain each piece of the puzzle – however, if clicking on them disturbs your reading flow, the articles on the old site are arranged, like the chapters, so that upon completion of the novel you may read through them, more or less, in a sort of order.
We realize the timeline from the novel has already passed, but the story is only intended to be an example. “Invisible Hand” is a vehicle whose sole purpose is to serve as an explanation of one of many possible ways this might happen. It is by no means an actual blueprint or fully developed plan, but rather, a launch pad or starting point from which to create a better future for us all.
Also, while the United States was used by the author for demonstrative purposes when writing the book, (largely due to Larry’s familiarity with his own country), the system depicted can be implemented in any well-developed – or self-sufficient – country. We would naturally be pleased to consult with and assist any that are interested.
When I met Larry, the novel was available chapter by chapter on a site for writers called gather.com, where users could (join gather and) comment upon and discuss the chapters as they read. Gather is no longer a user-generated site – paying by pageviews – and because we missed the ability to hold those conversations, this WordPress site is being developed to resume the conversation.
Once again, thank you for reading and please don’t hesitate to comment below each chapter!
“Invisible Hand” has the potential to improve your life and the lives of any who have faith that there IS change we can believe in. If you believe (as we do) that there is a better way, that all is not lost, and that there is still hope… then this book is for you. If you are willing to stand up and do what is necessary to facilitate real transformative change that goes deeper than lip service, this book is for you.
I was skeptical when I began reading this book. I thought I would find something about it that was objectionable to me and my beliefs, or irrational and unworkable. Nothing could be further from the truth. Larry K. Mason has detailed an economic system that not only CAN work, but in my humble opinion, MUST be implemented.
You can’t know if you agree or disagree unless you read it. So what are you waiting for?
I hope you’ll join me in supporting this movement.
