In this book, Maurits v. Falkenreck describes the decay of the Dutch welfare state, and also presents his innovative projects to counter this decay. During his years as an innovator and entrepreneur, he discovered the failing innovation system and culture in which he was operating. This resulted in a sharp and refined analysis of what he calls ‘The Political Ecosystem’.
Based on this model and the philosophical concept of ‘Model-Platonism’, Falkenreck has created a thorough system analysis of Western politics and society. He exposes, in a unique way, the design flaws of Western society as we have known it since the ’60s – which not only caused the decay of the welfare state, but also the erosion of the culture and identity of both the Western world and the African continent.
