" 'Enough is Enough': we are witnessing more & more uneconomic growth—growth that costs more than it is worth. An economy that chases perpetually increasing production & consumption, always in search of more, stands no chance of achieving a lasting prosperity. We need an economy that can meet our needs without undermining the life-support systems & resources of the planet. The book argues that now is the time to change the economic goal from the madness of more to the wisdom of enough."
