Co-author Rob Dietz of "Enough is Enough," on building a sustainable, no-growth economy
For many of us, a perpetual-growth economy in a world of finite resources doesn't make any sense, but the idea of a steady-state, no-growth economy creates fears of privation. Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill have set about to dispell those fears in their recent book Enough is Enough, and they offer a practical guide for living in a world a world where we pursue only "enough," and not "more." What would have to change in terms of our financial system, employment practices, consumer behavior, population growth, or the way we measure progress?
