His lifelong project of efficient, sustainable technology is at odds with the continued existence of this "grunch" of giants, so the book examines this conflict and the nature of control exerted by the grunch. It is a vision firmly rooted in his mindset as an engineer: rigorously logical as opposed to political , considering the whole globe as a system. The problem?

Grunch of Giants — by R. Buckminster Fuller as recommended by Robert T. Have you ever been so excited of a possibility of change on a global scale that you have to tell everyone about it? Then read on… I have been thinking about lots of things recently, watching the economy, weighing up the options and wondering where WE are all heading. Are we here to create wealth for ourselves, others or the planet?
In order to understand how the Grunch works, Fuller says you must first study their history and development. In beginning his explanation, Fuller quotes one of his friends, who he called a giant. So Fuller decided to make sense and he used his books to explain how the world works.
Have you ever considered if the resources of the planet and sun are becoming easier to harness? If technology is making it simpler and quicker to bring products to mass market? Are less humans required to operate said machinery to make the resources into products?
If you think about it and use your intuition you will realise that the answer is yes, yet prices seem to go up with inflation not down with economies of scale.
Why is this? Why does a pair of shoes, a house, a car or any other product now cost more than it did 10 years ago — should it not be less due to these economies? No — because of price fixing by corporate giants to turn even bigger profits. Greed of the few is not good for the survival of everyone. Today, one person can run an entire business by themselves on the internet from anywhere in the world.
Limited resources can harness an infinite return — yet the corporates do not want to share the wealth. What choices would you make? Congratulations to people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet for giving so much money to charities.
Yes they have it to give on a bigger scale than you or I but they also know what is important. But they keep stealing from the public to keep themselves going.
Making the mega-rich richer and everyone else poorer. What are you going to do about it? When the on-foot people got pikes, they were able to knock off the bullies on horses. The Internet is your pike and the people on it your network. As this book is not just about money, the time is coming to make a change — and the last chapter will show how you fit into cosmic picture… Do you have time NOT to read these eye-opening 63 pages that I have found online and shared with you?

Publisher: Estate of R. Buckminster Fuller consummates his literary canon, his panoramic lifetime survey of all aspects of the responsibility of human beings for their own destiny. This book is a modern allegory - his long-gestated myth-of the villainy of capitalism and the fecklessness of classic economics. For Fuller, the academic discipline of economics is irrelevant since it derives from an invalid assumption of scarcity.
