Pursuing Justice, Power and Property for Every Person.

[Our challenge is] to make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.

— R. Buckminster Fuller

Welcome to the new on-line library and learning center of the Center for Economic and Social Justice. CESJ is a non-profit educational organization, think tank and social action catalyst founded in 1984. We are dedicated to a free enterprise approach to economic and social justice for all, through equal opportunities to capital ownership for every person. Membership in CESJ is open to all who share our Core Values and Code of Ethics.

We teach and promote a socio-economic paradigm for the 21st Century that we call the “Just Third Way.” Turning our vision into reality, CESJ builds upon Louis Kelso’s binary economic theory for shaping policy; a national economic agenda called “the Capital Homestead Act”; ownership democratization vehicles for community, regional, national and global development; and Justice-Based Leadership, Governance and Management concepts for building organizational cultures of ownership, servant leadership, and justice.

CESJ is proud to be a founding organizational member of the Coalition for Capital Homesteading and the Global Justice Movement (.ORG). For those seeking a positive, principled alternative to the current political party system, we also suggest you examine the Platform of the Unite America Party (UAP). The UAP has adopted the Capital Homestead Act as its economic policy centerpiece, and offers its platform to any candidate or other party. We encourage you to join those organizations as well as CESJ.

SOLVE

Many of the problems in today’s world can be traced to power and ownership-concentrating economic systems and their methods of financing new growth. The Capital Homestead Act is a national economic agenda of monetary, tax, inheritance and expanded ownership reforms. Learn more about how we can fix these problems.

PARTICIPATE

As CESJ’s co-founder Fr. William Ferree wrote in his pamphlet “Introduction to Social Justice”: Social Justice requires each of us to “care for the Common Good” by organizing with others to ensure that every person has equal access and the means to participate in order to develop to his or her fullest human potential.
