Description

It's time for a new kind of economy
We re overusing the earth's finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In "Enough Is Enough," Rob Dietz and Dan O Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth an economy where the goal is not more but enough.
They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilize population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, "Enough Is Enough" is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
