The world is in Economic meltdown.
The twentieth century saw the success of capitalism over communism as a solution of provididing , motivating and fairly distributing wealth to all the far corners of the globe.

Utopia Maybe questions whether we have found the solution , or whether the current crisis could have been avoided and could be avoided in the future by adopting a new approach.
'UTOPIA maybe' is set on an island called ‘Knowhere’ – a combination of the meaning of the word Utopia ( no place ) with the greek word for ‘Knowledge’ . The suffix ‘Maybe’ refers to the inevitable questions that such a statement asks – Can there be a perfect society where there is no crime , people can retire at age 16 , there is no tax , there is no need for a formal benefit system , where people are encouraged to create wealth whilst at the same time philanphropy is encouraged and community and real democracy is cherished .
