Abstract:

Perpetual economic growth has ""worked"" for human civilization for centuries, but we've finally hit the wall, economically, socially, and environmentally. Advocates for growth can't deny one thing--the resources of the planet are finite, and running out fast, causing poverty, financial meltdowns, and wealth inequality. The authors show that cultivating a culture of ""enough"" can turn things around, and actually make us richer and happier.
