Universal Income for a Sustainable Future, Patrick Danahey (2003), Published by Universal Income Trust
"The purpose of this book is to provide research and documentation on sustainability and Universal Income Systems. It strives to be process and solution oriented. It outlines the principle problems facing humanity's ability to live in harmony with its natural environment and itself as derived from the United Nations conventions on sustainability. These include war, violence, poverty, pollution, disease, deforestation, biodiversity, energy, population control, food and water issues. It shows how Universal Income Systems act as an essential tool to empower people to be able to effectively work through these problems."

Arabic—General Brochure pdf (2008)
[Please note, the Arabic translation by Nada, above, has not been proofed and put into the standardised brochure format yet. The Principal computer we use to do this is seriously down at this time. However, we have many requests for Arabic translations of our resources and it has been deemed that even in its raw form the quality of her work is excellent. As such we have converted and reformatted it straight into pdf for upload here. The few problems that exist are in the "English" part of it resulting primarily from the conversion process that I used. They will be fixed and updated as son as our principal computer is repaired and we regain access to the appropriate programmes. Thank You—P.D.]
