Broken system overview

Capitalism does what it says on the tin: it overlays structures throughout society that, like gravity, pull wealth and resources toward those who already have them. It serves up food that makes us sick, pushing us into a healthcare system reliant on medication and creating medical dependency. We are demanded to work beyond our capacity with few protections for our well-being. Our work environments can make us sick, and hard work is no longer creates social mobility.  Insecurity is everywhere, as we are indebt to banks, we float untethered and ungrounded in falling system touting the benefits of individualism.  We sooth our struggles in addictions and cheap thrills and see the ground not meeting our human needs.  Hope for many is extinguished.   And then we are judged so harshly for failures to function in such a rigged system.

International experts

Capitalism overlays structures throughout society that, like gravity, pull wealth and resources toward those who already have them. Creating alternative systems will require determination, as these structures resist change and threaten those who benefit from them.

Our current path of late-stage capitalism leads us toward feudal corporatism, where asset managers increasingly take over roles traditionally managed by governments, such as providing services and building infrastructure. This shift exacerbates wealth disparity and worsens social inequality.

And where NZ is heading

From health and education to social services and infrastructure, asset managers are poised to take over these government systems. This shift paves the way for neo-feudalism to become our next societal structure. Governments will pay companies like BlackRock and Blackstone to build roads and social housing. In turn, New Zealanders will be charged to use these roads and live in these houses, making our new overlords figures like Jeff Bezos and Larry Fink.
