    If I could put one book on the bedside table of every world leader, it would be "Invisible Hand." America's transformation as envisioned in this novel could be the world's roadmap to a beautiful future.

    "Invisible Hand" This book expresses an idea that I personally find Utopian, but interesting. It proposes a system in which money is controlled to promote good social decisions and the benefit of the whole society. However, money can still be used in this system to buy anything you like, just as long as what you consume does not hurt other people. The sci-fi plot explores what the U.S. would be like as a society if this money system were voted in. This is a unique idea. The possibility of some kind of control of the use of money to promote maximum good for all members of society is intriguing.

    "Invisible Hand, by Larry Mason" This novel explores a simple statement with startling ramifications. What if most of our economic problems, and their resulting social ills, are caused by our antiquated from of money? What if we could change this root of evil to something else, something moral? How would the United States be different? What effect would it have on capitalism, on democracy, and on our Constitutional freedoms? Set in our near future, Larry Mason explores a world where technology is used to protect and defend the citizens of the United States from threats within, creating a feeling of safety, sanity, and hope dearly missing from today’s society. This is no flower-power communism, but instead a vision of how empowered individuals with the right to own and protect their persons, family, and property can also make a utopian community. Invisible hand is an exciting mix of what-if technology, action, and great characters. After reading this book, you’ll never look... More > at money in quite the same way again.< Less

    "Powerfully compelling. A must-read!" Last week I had the wistful experience of finishing one of the most thought-provoking pieces of literature I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Wistful because like any good book, you get to know the characters and are loath to bid them adieu. One can only hope this phenomenal writer will see fit to pen a sequel or perhaps some related short stories. On a par with Ayn Rand's monumental "Atlas Shrugged" without the long repetitive central speech that Ms. Rand felt it necessary to include in her work, "Invisible Hand" by Larry Mason suggests a viable solution to the problems plaguing America. Poverty, crime, drug addiction, health care, housing, nutrition... all of these are dealt with in a new type of society: one in which we are paid according to the net benefit of our actions. Basic food, clothing, shelter, medical care and certain other necessities such as education (at all levels) are "free" or no... More > charge to people in this scenario... although there are still luxuries and private ownership available to those willing to work and earn them. Private ownership is changed, however as there is no longer joint ownership of anything. This and many more intriguing concepts are explored in this brilliant masterpiece, which I highly recommend. While you're at it, buy a few extra copies for your friends and family. Enjoy!< Less
