Breaking down the barriers to solving world problems

Welcome to Simpol's U.S. campaign!

The Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) campaign invites citizens in the U.S., and citizens around the world, to use our votes in a powerful new way to solve global problems like global warming, financial market regulation, environmental destruction, war, and social injustice.

Cooperation among governments is essential because these problems cross national borders, and because competition to attract investment and jobs means that any government acting alone to solve them could effectively make its country economically uncompetitive, leading to inflation, unemployment, or even economic collapse. 

To solve global problems, governments must act together. If all governments act together, simultaneously, everyone wins. But while they fail to cooperate, it's the markets that continue to run politics - not we, the people.

By supporting Simpol you are driving governments to cooperate. You are telling politicians that you’ll be giving strong voting preference in all future national elections to politicians who have signed the Simpol Pledge, to the probable exclusion of those who haven't.  

With many seats in both Congress and the Senate, and even entire elections, hanging on a relatively low number of votes, even a relatively small block of Simpol supporters can make it in the vital interests of politicians to sign the Pledge - a process leading to the implementation of a range of policies to solve global problems. 

This is the simple mechanism Simpol supporters use to advance the cause of global justice. It's the simple mechanism we're using to take politics back. And it works. Thanks to our supporters, these politicians already support the campaign.

So please act now by signing up as a Simpol Supporter and inform your Representative and Senators of how you'll be voting in future elections. That way they'll know that they need to sign the Pledge if they want the best chance of receiving your vote.

Simpol's approach is peaceful, open, democratic, and it's free. By supporting Simpol, you gain the opportunity to

  • contribute, if you wish, to the formulation of specific policies to solve global problems, and
  • you join with others to use your vote in a new and effective way to drive the politicians of all parties and countries to implement those policies.

By supporting Simpol, you make yourself a part of the global political solution.

Simpol-USA latest news...

When will we finally take globalization seriously?

First Brexit, now Trump. It's happening because, as Simpol's founder John Bunzl explains in this new HuffPost article, we are still not taking globalisation seriously. But can the more protectionist world offered by populist politicians be a real alternative?

New book: The Simpol Solution

John Bunzl and Nick Duffell's new book, The Simpol Solution, is due out in the U.S. and Canada in Spring 2018 from Prometheus Books.

It explains why our efforts to deal with global problems are failing, and proposes new ways of thinking to help us tackle them. Blending politics and psychology, it shows us why we must all come to terms with the crippling effect of global competition and how through new thinking and simultaneous cooperative action we can overcome the problems we face today and tomorrow.
