Peace Parity Prosperity is a nonfiction that focuses on poverty and crime as problems of a civilized society and the concepts of peace, parity and prosperity. In separate chapters, the book details the problems of civilization, a brief history of civilization, evolution of occupations, categorization of humans, employment, existing solutions and universal maintenance allowance and possible impact. In the end, the author provided a summary, terminologies and sources. These topics are simplified for better understanding.

The book details the problems that every civilized society is facing, which is crime and poverty manifested by hunger, poor health and lack of education. Throughout history, these problems occurred and are existing as of the present. It also presented facts to show how serious these problems are across different countries whether developing or developed. The years used for these facts are not uniform, but this will not negatively affect the book. Even in my country which is a developing one, very poor people exist and they make up a big percentage of our population. Most of them are living on the outskirts and within the capital. In addition, we hear news of different crimes committed during the day. Sometimes, it makes me wonder how these problems existed. This book presented a brief detail on how these problems were introduced in history.

The book also details existing solutions to solve these problems. Enumerated solutions for crime are religious practices which involve religious teachings and politico-economic laws which involve laws defined by political leaders. The book discussed a number of solutions to mitigate poverty. One is provided by the government in the form of welfare activities. Another is the international aid provided by developed nations to help poor countries through the World Bank and United Nations. Both of these are intended to be received by the poor. I agree that there are instances that help do not go to the beneficiaries due to corruption by officials and politicians. Even these instances happened in my country. Despite the efforts of the society to treat the problem of poverty and crime, both still persist.

The author discussed in detail a possible solution to treat these problems and its possible impacts. This is called Universal Maintenance Allowance which basically aims to provide cash allowance from public funds to each member of the society to be used to buy the minimum food requirement. Sample calculations and requirements were also presented and for this to be possible. I admire the author’s ideas on the ways to solve crime and poverty and his insights about how to attain peace, parity and prosperity in the society. I think that this is difficult to realize because crime and poverty are becoming worse as the time goes by, however, this book has given me hope that it is possible if members of the society cooperate.

The contents are written in simple language which makes it easy to understand. I rate this book, Peace Parity Prosperity, 4 out of 4 stars. The contents are full of information about the problems faced by the civilized society. In addition, it also discussed possible solutions to cure these problems. I highly recommend it to all readers, as we are all part of a society. Readers will also learn what they are in this society, depending on what they do and what they stand for. They will also learn what they can contribute to support a civilized society.

I found your review interesting, though it does sound like the author is very naïve. It is claimed that 90% of the worlds wealth is owned by 10% of the population. It's also been suggested, that if all the money in the world was collected together and then evenly distributed between the whole population of the world. Then within 2 years the original ratio would again be achieved, though not necessarily the same 10%, though a large portion would be the same.
This show that the people need to be shown how to handle their money properly. If we all knew how to manage money properly it would cure mist of the problems that the author seems to think religion would fix. Whereas I believe most religions are just organised thieves.
Anyway that's my two penny worth.

I think it's awfully easy to sit in a cushy house or at a cushy desk and say you have the answers to poverty and crime. It's a little bit harder to actually bring those into existence. Still, I'd be interested in seeing what the author's ideas are. Thanks for a good review.

Interesting! I'm hoping the solution presented is one that people can embrace. I'm dreading that the first judgment will be "Socialism!" and the reader will write off at that point anything good that the author has to say. Your review has inspired me to check it out.
