This site developed from an attempt to write a book. I think the web-site format suits the the material, it allows for searching, easy cross referencing and supports non-sequential reading. This is the initial published version - a soft launch on Facebook and LinkedIn with links to this eBook. 

Version 1.0 Soft Launch, Content Complete and Stable, All sections written and reviewed

July 2020 Related site hope-wiki launched

Future Plans

  • Apply feedback from the soft launch of V1.0
  • Refine sections on the economic vision
  • Refine sections on recent history
  • More active promotion
  • Inaugurating work on The Hope Association and or discussion forum

I don't think this ebook/site will ever be entirely finished, not least because human knowledge is developing all the time. I have taken a snapshot of V1.0 and archived it. The best I can hope for is that the framework is stable so that I can keep learning, adding and refining the articles. The web-site format makes keeping up to date and continual development practical.
