Α Radical Policy for Combating Unemployment. The Future Network: Autonomous Workers, Stock Holders, Consumers and the State, Papazissis Publishers, 2020.

The book describes a proposal for a new policy on combating unemployment. The full concept includes an innovative “entrepreneurial” activity, but without any business involvement of capital holders and, therefore, any risk. The state regulates the crucial issues, with the necessary institutions. There is a combination of funding: a major part of funding is private. The public co-financing is significant but minimal and partly returnable. The local authorities coordinate the procedure. All economic actors are active in this process. The un-employed persons work as autonomous workers. This policy includes the initial financing by the holders of capital (common deposit accounts are created within the commercial banks at a special interest rate). The citizens, as consumers of the offered services by the beneficiaries, participate to the financing of the program. Special securities are created for the payment of beneficiaries (from the pool of unemployed persons). The beneficiaries’ remuneration is absolutely included in the securities. The securities include the contribution to the social security system and the relative tax. The function of the policy creates dividends by its yields, for the beneficiaries and the stock holders. The implementation of this radical policy does not have any of the problems of the previous models of intervention. Unemployment could be an issue of the past for our civilisation.

Dealing with Disasters, Perspectives from Eco-Cosmologies(2021)
Editors: Riboli, D., Stewart, P.J., Strathern, A.J., Torri, D. (Eds.)ΕΚΔΟΣΕΙΣ PALGRAVE MACMILLAN
Providing a fresh look at some of the pressing issues of our world today, this collection focuses on experiential and ritualized coping practices in response to a multitude of environmental challenges—cyclones, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, earthquakes, warfare and displacements of peoples and environmental resource exploitation. Eco-cosmological practices conducted by skilled healing practitioners utilize knowledge embedded in the cosmological grounding of place and experiences of place and the landscapes in which such experience is encapsulated. A range of geographic case studies are presented in this volume, exploring Asia, Europe, the Pacific, and South America. With special reference throughout to ritual as a mode of seeking the stabilization, renewal, and continuity of life processes, this volume will be of particular interest to readers working in shamanic and healing practices, environmental concerns surrounding sustainability and conservation, ethnomedical systems, and religious and ritual studies.
