Our Mission Statement
CSQ Research’s Global Leadership Faculty provides governance for decisions (policy) and education in Investment (Finance), Civics, Economics, Engineering, Business, Government, and Law – that build the productions and productivity we need for human advance
Our Program Goals include:
- CSQ Programs must be Worthwhile – by Aristotle’s definition:
“build meaningful lives through purposeful actions (Worthwhile Projects) which reliably lead to good lives within sustainably advancing communities”
abridged Messerly, Aristotle, Politic 322 BCE
- Leadership – sheppards human advance with:
- Systemic Empathy (Good – in teaching, actions, and Law)
- Respect (of family and neighbours)
- Creation: building strong economies (double original size), strong and resilient self-sufficiency, all basic needs, productivity and production, strong social contracts, democracies, communities, schools, education, courseware, and families
- Every problem is solvable – report “WHAT” needs to happen AND also “HOW” to fix the problem; World Peace, World Hunger
- We can build anything
- Science Fiction – is just a technology project away
- Proven best-practice – GL-BOK Methods and Programs are 100% science – 0% theory, Leed, Sustain, Transition Economics, ITSM, Roberts
- Identify, Work, and Solve the problem, and the problem’s cause – not just symptoms
- Remove Collapse Motivators – inhibitors of human advance which are causal to economic and social collapse
- CSQ Research isn’t futuristic – There is nothing 100-years away here; we build resilient assembly lines using today’s tech and engineering processes
History – How do we define the Policies and Projects that build Scientific Societies?
Our Global Leadership Faculty’s Scientific Societies Programme is built from the research of eight major theses.
2014 – CSQ Common Sense 101 was a high-school course for Grade 10 students. Common Sense is the social benefit of our decisions; the Common Sense 101 course – explains to kids how to vote (in democratic settings) and how to build a Good Life and a sustainable society.
The course sets lessons using a secular, non-political, and scientific approach – while covering essential topics of philosophy contained in every bible – of essential Good, Empathy, the Golden Rule, Ten Commandments, Seven Deadly Sins, Jubilees (Economic Resets and balance), alongside time management, stress management, speed reading, memory improvement, mourning, and other life skill-building topics not covered in our curriculums today.
CSQ Common Sense 101 identifies all of the worthwhile social, economic, and engineering projects needed to build Aristotle’s Good Life from a global, country, community, school, friends, family, right on down to an individual’s point-of-view.
Thirty-eight major projects in all were identified as needed to build a sustainable society and future, and then these projects were sequenced chronologically to create the CSQ 100 Year Plan.
With this plan in hand, the cherry-picking of just those projects that were needed to deliver an easily scalable World Peace everywhere – was straightforward.
2015 – World Peace – The Transition is our first engineering plan for World Peace – and explained a United Nations-led plan to build the #WPProject assembly-lines needed to build sustainable societies globally – and, as with all of our books, it also explained “How” to build the technology, trade networks, and policy – by Aristotle’s Right Plan approach.
CSQ Research is also home to the SUSTAIN Project Management Method, a powerful best-practice approach for building large, complex change reliably. Every project had:
Discovery (WHAT – is needed?) -> Design (HOW – will we Implement it?) -> BUILD -> Monitor & Life Cycle Manage
2016 – Transition Economics – The definition of a new science to explain what was needed to repair our economy. TE established that we needed a new evidence-based science in Economics, which we called Transition Economics. The Transition Economics Maturity Models, RAI – Renewable Automation Index, and The CMI – Country Management Index were important rough estimates of what was needed (The Requirements) of Transition Economics.
2018 – “End of War – Managing Mature Capitalisms” mapped all of the requirements of a Sustainable Society, and produced a fully designed solution. A second finance-driven engineering plan for World Peace was called Worthwhile Industries in a plan that recruited our financial industries and econometric science to build Scientific Societies globally.
TEP Charts (Transition Economics Proofs) are introduced here, as is the World at our Hands report which showcases the growing shared library of Transition Economics stats for any policy (in time) – and the Social Contract Product Report and replacement for the GDP.
The ACT Parties Concept permits us to vote for this Right Plan of proven policy and technology projects. TASK (sp/TASSC) – The Academic Sustainable Societies Challenge, engages our academic leaders to maintain a sustainable society globally – in a much more active way.
Worthwhile Industries and Worthwhile Ventures Capital, are our second engineering plan for World Peace and an end to World Hunger. These are the companies and capital financing contracts required to build Human Advance through Global Leadership.
The Social Contract Product Report (The SCP), and Social Contract Loss Reports, explain every nation’s ranking for Social Contract – and therefore Productivity, and it estimates the cost to every economy for weak Social Contracts. The SCP proves that strong Social Contracts build strong economies and that the opposite is true as well. SCP also explains that Social Contract was swept away from our curriculums by unscientific ambiguous and truthfully meaningless terms, ideologies, and theories, from Marxism, Neoliberalism, Wealth Theory, Micro and Macroeconomics Theory, and so on – to the very great detriment of large-population democracies whose constitutions failed to protect voters from clear lying.
The scientific terms that we use are explained in our Glossary, the USE CASE for the International Monetary System, which disambiguates and standardizes all ACTORs, INPUTs, and OUTPUTs of an economic policy decision-making process.
2020 – MEMS (Model Economy Model Society) was created to ensure scientific decision supports needed to double economies reliably.
We live on a planet where just 20% are assured the basic human rights of a strong social contract – food, clean water, energy, transportation, reliable sufficient incomes, security, healthcare, and shelter; 90% do not have a pension worldwide. MEMS permits us to build smart targets and the projects needed to make a positive difference quickly, reliably, and also profitably – for investors.
The need for a Global Leadership Faculty was identified and research work was rebranded to The Scientific Societies Programme.
The Global Leadership Book of Knowledge (GL-BOK) – The Reference Guide for the 100% evidence-based science of Global Leadership
The Book – A civics textbook and social Owner’s Manual, “The Book” is the first scientific update of the scientific-by-observation Bible (Biblia Vulgata) since 425 AD.
Ta Biblia (“The Books” in Greek) was an update of the 763 BC Hebrew Bible, which was an update of the 1763 BC Code of Hammurabi, which updated Constitutions, Laws, and Bills of Rights from our first civilizations in Iraq (Babylon and Mesopotamia) and Kingdoms of Egypt and the Middle East.
MEMS’ Double Your Economy Challenge begins …
Constitutional Reform – The Case Study that proves one Constitution is scientifically better than all others
Threshold Analytics – were added to Transition Economics
WAOH – the World’s largest evidence-based context-validated econometric library, received a considerable facelift.
What are the origins of “CSQ”?
CSQ – Common Sense Quotient – Common Sense is the social benefit of our decisions. A man or woman with a high IQ and high EQ can be a President or a Serial Killer as easily; but a high-CSQ individual – is a leader. “CSQ” was defined in our 2014 CSQ Common Sense 101 Civics Course for high-schools. Take the CSQ Test here – (coming very soon). A High-CSQ individual is one who makes decisions that benefit society and can be called worthwhile as well.
What does CSQ Research build?
CSQ Research builds curricula for the emerging academic Faculty of Global Leadership; Challenges for academic, government, finance, and industry leads; Certification Programs; theses, articles and courseware in: Epistemology (Systems of Education), Government Policy, and Economic Research.
Through our do-tank, Worthwhile Industries Campuses and Worthwhile Ventures Capital, we build solution companies which produce 70% of the planet’s GDP as needed by our Social Contracts – so food, pharmaceuticals, forestry, manufacturing, housing, construction, and more
We build Intellectual Property (IP) in robotics, cross-industry automation, clean energy solutions (Cirenergy, GridBots, and FuelBots), and worthwhile solutions that a build opportunity and Good Lives in the industries that build strong, self-sufficient economies

How quickly are we making Projects and Changes happen?
In World Peace – The Transition, we explained that “science fiction” takes just an engineering project to turn almost anything into a reality. How quickly do all of these changes happen? The Driverless Car took just two years to develop and pilot – and at the time of this writing, those pilot cars have completed many million miles of accident-free driving miles
Worthwhile CAMPUSes build Worldville 1.0 within just two-to-five years similarly – and wait until you see “Oasis” – which will take perhaps just ten years. * (Timing is constrained by capital financing only)
At CSQ Research, we run projects of tremendous value that can be realized very quickly. We run with very high quality via our SUSTAIN Programs and Certify other project teams as well. SUSTAIN is a well-defined process proven in engineering offices that run 1000+ engineering projects annually
The complex work of building a bright future is just another day at the office for us
In the end, just nineteen projects were needed to build World Peace – Six Social Projects and Thirteen Engineering Projects. #WPProjects and Worthwhile Campuses are a mitigation plan for one of these nineteen engineering projects.
#WPProjects – assigns the 250 engineering projects needed country-by-country. Each national engineering team then robotically automates this basic need – of food, shelter, energy, education, transportation.
Worthwhile Industries – allows financial industries and national investment that builds, and profits from, the sustainable solution companies which are needed to build a strong social contract – and a strong economy – in every nation
At a point in the very distant future, a self-powered Replicator can be invented and installed in every home. Until then our assembly-lines and delivery systems meet the needs of strong social contracts, self-sufficiency and good lives.
Everything CSQ Research recommends, designs, and builds, aligns with a Right Plan – a Strategic Plan of worthwhile projects that build Good Lives and a Sustainable Society.
The Right Plan is the one whose ends, means, practical thinking and purposeful action result in a Good Life. A life full of things you need – and not necessarily a life full of everything you want. With a little luck, goods in body and soul, and by making a habit of good choices that reflect moral virtues of temperance, courage, and justice, a Good Life should be sought and found.

Common CSQ Terms
In CSQ terminology, most:
Actions or Changes – are treated as Projects and are recommended to follow a Project Management Life Cycle (PMLC) methodology. In broad terms, four steps of a project are – Discovery -> Design -> Implementation -> Revision Management
Communities – the smallest measure of a community is a country.
This definition ensures that multiple communities do not defensively compete within a single country. We are a planet of 200+ Sovereign Nations each with important cultures – that seems like sufficient diversity. Countries administer their WP Transition Projects while a central administrator – presently CSQ Research and eventually the United Nations – monitors and coordinates the 250+ projects.
What is a “Good Life”?
The term “Good Life” was used by Aristotle 2500 years ago to describe the American Dream – and it is an important building block for sustainable societies that we as CSQ work very hard to build. A Good Life is a life with all basic human rights as described in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, as well as others – and it includes food, shelter, energy, security, love, family, education, healthcare, transportation, opportunity. A life full of the things we need; but not necessarily all of the things that we might want.
What is a Meaningful Life?
Ah yes, the meaning of life. This is, not surprisingly, an important discussion. Scholars and Philosophers have consolidated create writings for a lifetime and many summarize it down to this.
A Meaningful Life is one spent building projects and in pursuits that lead to a sustainable society.
Having happiness or religion, does make a life meaningful as neither of these in themselves requires action nor meaningful result. Suggested reading is the Meaning of Life Chapters in World Peace – The Transition and CSQ Common Sense 101
What is Freedom?
Aristotle described a worthwhile meaningful life full of things we need; and not necessarily all of the things we want. Liberte is not freedom; no one has the freedom to remove the freedom of healthy contributing neighbours, so our definition of Freedom will align with the scientific Bible:
Freedom – permits young families to have children at age 20 if they wish, while attending higher education too – from within a family home of their own – that they afford with incomes that they can reliably find by themselves. All of this is possible without saving for years before young adults can pay off student loans and then afford a home and children – in their 30s.
This is a freedom that the wealthy enjoy today easily – by buying their children homes and cars for them. What pride can a spoiled child take without accomplishment? A strong national social contract would see this standard of living become the baseline for freedom in a society.
Families – can live close closeby – if they wish, can own a home in the city they grew up in, and this helps families support younger and older generations of family too.
Women can train and raise their children as and when they want. Fathers are productive income earners and not bound to socially meaningless or economically detrimental careers, and both can spend time in research and worthwhile engineering, medical, and community work – if they wish.
A lifetime of art, science, discovery, adventure, and acknowledged and rewarded contribution while building worthwhile projects is possible – with the opportunity to have sufficient supports and the safety nets that empower risk-takers and entrepreneurs to make an economy productive.
In a monetary society, Freedom can also be defined as what can be accomplished with the reliable incomes left-over after paying all costs-of-living. When no income is left over after paying all costs-of-living, Freedoms are significantly restricted. When incomes do not pay even the costs-of-living, is can be said there are no freedoms and either no Social Contract or a weak and collapsing Social Contract as well.
Leaders are Experts; and non-experts should never be elevated to leadership positions
Why should we want to automate our current manual Production Economy? It’s simple – do you believe that anyone will starve once food arrives at everyone’s home automatically? Or will you stay up nights worrying about how will you pay your rent or mortgage once that home is available to you automatically, without cost as well? Of course not.
Will anyone want to buy our higher-cost and lower-quality exports once our competitors turn out their factory lights and produce 7/24 sustainably? Absolutely not – we are seeing this already today. The impact on our economy will be as devastating as was the U.S.S.R.’s Lada Cars & other export failures by 1985; history teaches us that economic collapse soon follows export collapse if we aren’t self-sufficient as well.
With automation and time, the importance of money will fall away all by itself. A benefit of this change is that soon, making decisions based on moral reasonings get easier. True “Freedom” and strong democracies are found in the sustainable abundance created by automation; scarcity – was the economy of the dark ages.
We all win. The philosophy of the Golden Rule’s time-tested sustainability model works very well as intended.
Disruption – as in the changes needed by human advance, is a very good thing – but only when Governments have planned for it and Social Contracts are kept high to permit people from being thrown under the bus by poor leadership and poor planning.
In G7 nations, most of our systems of housing, retirement, benefits, and income are based on a one-job-for-life model – which worked in 1960. This model no longer exists and is rapidly vanishing altogether for the great majority of the world’s citizens within this next 10 to 20 years.
Income interruptions equate to hunger, social problems, homelessness, and even revolution – once communities are pushed far enough. So, instead of hardships, we change these systems as have many other countries who have made these changes already – like Germany, Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, and 100-million other citizens in other strong social policy countries – where the American Dream is alive and well, thirty-five years after it was lost by its creator – the America of the 1940s.
