About the Author

Jonathan Rowe was a Nader's "Raider," a US Senate aide, an editor at the Washington Monthly, and cofounder of OntheCommons.org. Peter Barnes (editor) is a cofounder of Working Assets/Credo and the author of Capitalism 3.0.


"This elegant book is a wonderful introduction to the originality of thought, clarity of expression, and humanity of vision that made Jonathan Rowe so respected by those who knew him. It will change the way you think about economic, environmental and social problems and how to solve them. "
- James Fallows, national correspondent, The Atlantic

"Jonathan Rowe describes the emerging movement to protect the vast commonwealth owned by the people. Gird yourself to see nature and human ingenuity in a very different light. Then open these pages and a whole new world will come into focus."
-Ralph Nader

"There is an economics of common wealth. Common wealth can and must be managed. That is Jon Rowe's gift to us."
--George Lakoff, Professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics, University of California at Berkeley and author of Don't Think of an Elephant
