As the introduction to John’s latest book says, compellingly: “In the 21st century we face innumerable challenges both now and in the future, from mass migration, unfettered corporate power, to inequality, big data and climate change. Ahead of these global threats and tragedies is a common barrier to their solution it is the spirit that has defined the age we live in: competition. The Simultaneous Policy Solution, the ‘SIMPOL Solution’ shows us how we must all come to terms with the crippling effect of global competition. Only through simultaneous action, through cooperation, can we overcome these problems”.
Since then, John writes, further editions have come out in Canada, Netherlands and Germany (German title is “Nationales Denken, Globale Krise”. National thinking, global crises.).

Re-Base Camp – London
The new website tells readers that John Bunzl has been invited to host a round-table discussion on democracy at Re-Base Camp, to be held in London 4-5th November, 2019. Led by author, Chris Kutarna, Re-Base Camp is “a global invitation to collectively re-imagine our future and actively participate in expeditions for systemic change”.
Only through simultaneous action, through cooperation, can we address the challenges facing us.
Climate change, mass migration, unfettered corporate power, religious fanaticism, inequality, the rise of the far right . . . Individually these problems are tough enough; combined, they’re surely insurmountable. Or are they?
The Simpol Solution explains why our efforts to deal with these issues are failing and proposes new ways of thinking that can help us tackle them. Drawing on a multinational movement already gaining momentum among politicians and academics, this game-changing book proposes a solution which shows that solving global problems could be closer than we think.
‘The Simpol Solution takes a welcome fresh look at political/economic reality and clearly explains the psychology behind why we need new eyes to see how we might force politicians to change the world on our behalf.’ – Joris Luyendijk, author, journalist and talk-show host
‘I nodded until I got a crick in my neck. I haven’t read a book for years that I agreed with so deeply and so consistently – nor felt so keenly that these are messages the world needs to hear.’ – Simon Anholt, founder, the Good Country Index
‘The Simpol Solution shows the real possibilities of a worldcentric paradigm shift, transcending from a competitive to a cooperative evolution and mode of consciousness. A real pleasure to read and a potential political pathbreaker.’ – Professor Ugo Mattei, University of California
‘A courageous and urgently needed book.’ – Ervin Laszlo, author, philosopher and evolutionary systems theorist
