This will be a new novel, set in the future.
Global capitalism has failed, leading to a chain reaction of political failures and a global collapse. New nations have arisen. One of these is located in the northwestern part of North America. It is technologically advanced and governed by interlocking councils. The nation rejected unfettered capitalism as uncontrollable and ultimately destructive, but 60 years after the it’s founding, a lack of profit incentives imposes problems of its own. Collective rule is also proving to be challenging.
I’m interested in your ideas about what such a world would look like and what problems such a place might encounter. Comments are welcome.
