We've outpaced our planet. It's a truth we can no longer escape or ignore. In Enough is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill urge us to shift our focus from the symptoms to the cause: The pursuit of never ending economic growth. Since we live in a world of finite resources, we must change our economic goals from the madness of more to the wisdom of enough. What sets this book apart is its focus on the solution: A prosperous and stable steady-state economy. Dietz and O'Neill describe the features of this economy and explain how to achieve it. They explore specific strategies to limit resource use, stabilize population, achieve a fair distribution of income and wealth, reform the financial system, reduce unemployment and more - all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short term profits. They also provide advice for changing consumer behavior and shifting the political conversation away from the misguided pursuit of economic growth and toward the things that really matter filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
