Fixing the Root Bug is not just about solving unemployment. Many of our world’s most significant social and sustainability issues – or our seeming impotence to solve them by other simple means – can be traced back to this labor (and financial) market imperfection as well as private monopolies. Major factors making the Root Bug so severe in its impacts are the growth dependence it causes and the resulting, extremely unproductive “economy war” nations are fighting against each other – trying to indebt each other by any means.

These issues and the relationships between them (the arrows in the infogram below) are explained in more detail in volume 4 of Fixing the Root Bug. For an overview of problems in each area, select the relevant subpage in the ribbon or click on links in the image below.
