We’re overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. It’s time for a new kind of economy.
In the new book 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 enough, not more.
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.
It includes a chapter on the need to move towards a system of full-reserve banking, which has much in common with proposals made by Positive Money.
“A lucid, informed, and highly constructive book.”
