Statement of Shared Vision (Intro)


“Toward a More Free and Just Global Economy”


With great pleasure we present for your serious consideration and support a “Statement of Shared Vision” that was jointly developed by Shann Turnbull, the Australian author of Democratizing the Wealth of Nations, and Norman Kurland, a pioneer of employee stock ownership law in the U.S. and advocate since the mid 1960s of the late Louis Kelso’s ideas for reaching the same goal as expressed in the title of Shann’s book.

If you agree to become a signatory to this statement, we ask you also to make a concerted effort to get at least 10 others in your personal and professional networks around the world to join as signatories and make a similar commitment. In this “each one reach ten” approach we will achieve the critical mass of positive people power needed to build a better world for ourselves and future generations.

The names of all the signatories will be posted on the web site of the Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ) at As soon as 10,000 signatories worldwide sign our “Statement of Shared Vision” and join our movement for raising the level of justice in the global economic order, we will convene a global conference in Washington, D.C. At the conference we will explore alternative ideas, economic systems, global strategies and the most effective ways and means to achieve our shared vision consistent with universal principles of human rights.

If you agree to join this bottom-up grassroots initiative for creating a more prosperous and just world for all, please add your name and contact data to the bottom of the statement and return it by e-mail at or by fax at 703-243-5935.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
