The Best Investment: Land in a Loving Community

The Best Investment: Land in a Loving Community

This classic book on the community route to living better on less will show you how hundreds of people are able to own fine homes without mortgages. The methods consist of re-arranging the assets you already have -- taking the money that is going to your landlord or to the bank and using it to buy building materials. There are some sacrifices. It's not for everyone. This book will help you decide whether this option is good for you. As great as the economic benefits are the spiritual benefits of living in an ecological community with friends is greater.

One chapter poses the question of whether you should try to do it alone or with a community. Another chapter outlines the options you have in building a home. In another chapter I tell you just enough about growing vegetables and raising livestock so you can decide if that is for you.

WIN/WIN The Peace Game

WIN/WIN is an enjoyable board game and also a serious research tool. Based on the Prisoner's Dilemma model used by many peace researchers, WIN/WIN can be used to examine how alternative approaches to conflict increase or decrease cooperation.

WIN/WIN forces players to choose between being aggressive and being cooperative. When any player lands on special squares they must choose whether to buy a bomb or not buy a bomb, to pollute or not polute, to contribute to the commons or be a freeloader, and whether to bulley others or live in peace. Each player has cards with these choices and must make decisions without knowing whether the other players are choosing to be cooperative or aggressive. Players cover the card that incidates their decision and then everyone shows their choice at the same time.

WIN/WIN comes with an 8 1/2 by 14" board, 8 player pieces and choice cards for each player, dice, missiles, and resource cards. Each game has instructions, a booklet on the logic of the choices, A Research Guide that suggests topics that can be researched such as "How can cooperation be increased?, and a booklet that tells the results of past research.

Each complete game is only $19.95.
