After Capitalism: Prout's Vision for a New World
by Dada Maheshvarananda

What people are saying about the book

“Alternative visions are crucial at this moment in history. Prout’s cooperative model of economic democracy, based on cardinal human values and sharing the resources of the planet for the welfare of everyone, deserves our serious consideration.” – Noam Chomsky, professor of linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), author of more than 70 books and 1000 published articles.

After Capitalism is refreshingly original. It is spiritual and utopian while remaining grounded in reality. Its analysis is intelligent and its vision inspiring.” – Howard Zinn, author of the best-selling A People’s History of the United States

“An important contribution to re-thinking the disastrous course of the current economic globalization.” – Hazel Henderson, economist, author of Beyond Globalization

“The constitutional proposals of Prout are the ethical summary of everything that humanity needs to accomplish universal fraternity. The importance of Prout is that its vision of a new world is not just concerned with political, social and economic relationships, but also with education, gender relationships and spirituality.” – Frei Betto, Dominican friar, activist and author of more than 40 books, including the bestseller Fidel and Religion

“Prout is very important to all who yearn for a liberation which starts from economics and opens to a totality of personal and social human existence.” – Leonardo Boff, Brazilian author and one of the founders of Liberation Theology

“Prout’s vision is both holistic and systemic, with a concrete way of reorganizing society. It has the power to construct itself in a post-capitalist project. Prout is transforming and profoundly revolutionary, and I support all of its dimensions.” – Marcos Arruda, Brazilian economist and author

“The beauty and originality of this book is how well it articulates the critical vision of society, offering a new proposal of justice starting from a very deep and ecumenical spiritual option. Written in such a simple and clear way, it seems like one of many of the best writings of Liberation Theology and is suitable as a manual for study and spiritual and community action for the Catholic ecclesiastical base communities and for Brazilian social movements.” – Father Marcelo Barros, Benedictine monk, theologian and Bible expert, author of 25 books

After Capitalism is very informative on a variety of issues. In particular, its vision for transforming the overall socio-economic structures and its promotion of restorative justice are to be welcomed.Jim Consedine, New Zealand Coordinator, Restorative Justice Network

Neo-liberalism tries to perversely rob the people of their dreams, their Utopias, their hopes, their desires and their faith. After Capitalism saves this dimension, announcing new horizons and possibilities. I highly recommend the reading and popularization of this book.Prof. Patrus Ananias, co-founder of the popular Brazilian Workers’ Party and former mayor of Belo Horizonte

“The world needs new socioeconomic structures that are more just, stronger and less self-centered like Prout; and we need to make systematic changes that free us, too. As Dada wrote, ‘Let us build a new world together.’” – Maria Dirlene Trindade Marques professor of economics, feminist, president of the Economists’ Union and coordinator of the State Committee of the World Social Forum

“At such a dark hour in human history, PROUT brings forth hope and light to all the plants, animals and people on this planet.  PROUT is more than just a theory; it is a compassionate socio- economic paradigm that will heal Mother Earth.” – Nada Khader, Executive Director, Westchester People's Action Coalition

“This is a fine book - thought-provoking and fresh. Essentially it is about the kinds of values and principles that can provide the foundations of tomorrow's alternatives to the unhappy and destructive free market societies.” – Nicky Hager, author, New Zealand

After Capitalism is full of wisdom and conviction. Prout unites all our higher and nobler sentiments, our higher values, our higher humanistic cultural tradition, and incorporates them in the organizational principles of a new economic system.” – Carlos Minc, Brazilian ecologist, author and state congressman

“Truly radical, in deep communion with nature, Prout demands new paradigms for education that develops a critical consciousness. It reinforces the slogan of the World Social Forum: another world is possible, necessary and urgent.” – Father Henrique de Moura Faria, Coordinator of the Inter-Religious Political Forum of Belo Horizonte

“Prout represents a new type of society that is plural and more democratic.” – Rogério Correio, Brazilian state congressman
