The story we're telling is simple: as humans have globalized, family values have not scaled well. Not so many lifetimes ago, we lived in kin tribes where our interests were aligned according to the principles of inclusive fitness. Unfortunately, those principles are maladapted to our modern era, as fake news, fake foods, and fake politicians endemic in our society are catalyzed by the low alignment of interests among strangers.
We wrote this book to help the world reimagine new types of social, political, and economic institutions for the global village. The social contract of the future will be based on the principles of inclusive stakeholding and vested interest in the success of others—attributes that were inherent in the inclusive fitness of our prehistoric social systems.
The time has come for Interdependent Capitalism.
