The Life Code of Value is the unifying concept of all real life-wealth and productive economy that provides a scientific and algorithmic basis for decision-making in an Resource-Based Economy (RBE) based on the most essential and universal criteria: the value of all life, which is that which is necessary to support and complement it and without which life is diminished or destroyed. By grounding-in this axiom, no one form of life, philosophy or culture is favoured. Yet the holistic organisms linked together on the planet are all benefited across social, ecological and organic domains.
This Life-Axiom is an Axis of 40-years work. John McMurtry (PhD) is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Guelph, Canada; and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (FRSC). His life's work has focused on the life-blind value structure of economic theory and its consequences for global civil and environmental life through deep structural life-value system analysis. His latest book is The Cancer Stage of Capitalism: From Crisis to Cure.
