Deep Economy Description

The bestselling author of The End of Nature issues an impassioned call to arms for an economy that creates community and ennobles our livesIn this powerful and provocative manifesto, Bill McKibben offers the biggest challenge in a generation to the prevailing view of our economy For the first time in human history, he observes, is no longer synonymous with better indeed, for many of us, they have become almost opposites McKibben puts forward a new way to think about the things we buy, the food we eat, the energy we use, and the money that pays for it all Our purchases, he says, need not be at odds with the things we truly value.McKibben s animating idea is that we need to move beyond growth as the paramount economic ideal and pursue prosperity in a local direction, with cities, suburbs, and regions producing of their own food, generating of their own energy, and even creating of their own culture and entertainment He shows this concept blossoming around the world with striking results, from the burgeoning economies of India and China to the mature societies of Europe and New England For those who worry about environmental threats, he offers a route out of the worst of those problems for those who wonder if there isn t something to life than buying, he provides the insight to think about one s life as an individual and as a member of a larger community.McKibben offers a realistic, if challenging, scenario for a hopeful future As he so eloquently shows, the we nurture the essential humanity of our economy, the we will recapture our own..
