“TRUE WEALTH: HOW AND WHY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ARE CREATING A TIME-RICH, ECOLOGICALLY LIGHT, SMALL-SCALE, HIGH-SATISFACTION ECONOMY”

Economist and bestselling author Juliet B. Schor offers a groundbreaking intellectual statement about the economics and sociology of ecological
decline, suggesting a radical change in how we think about consumer goods, value, and ways to live.Humans are degrading the planet far faster than
they are regenerating it. As we travel along this shutdown path, food, energy, transport and consumer goods are becoming increasingly expensive.
The economic downturn that has accompanied the ecological crisis has led to another type of scarcity: incomes, jobs, and credit are also in short
supply. Our usual way back to growth — a debt-financed consumer boom — is no longer an option our households, or planet, can afford.Responding to our
current moment, Plenitude puts sustainability at its core, but it is not a paradigm of sacrifice. Instead it’s an argument that through a major shift
to new sources of wealth, green technologies, and different ways of living, individuals and the country as a whole can actually be better off and more
economically secure.
