Publisher's Summary

It's time for a new kind of economy
We're overusing the earth's finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In 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 not more but enough.
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.

Excellent survey of sustability economics

Would you listen to Enough Is Enough again? Why?

Many parts of this intelligent book are worth listing to twice. It counters the complacently self-styled "common sense" of mainstream economics.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Its continual emphasis on the ecosystem as the foundation on which economic activity rests.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Much economic growth is actually uneconomic growth, once its true costs are seen.

Any additional comments?

This is a serious book without ever being obscure or dull. Even a congressman could understand it. Let's hope many will do so.

Good ideas.

Narrator is dull. Can only listen in short bursts. Ideas presented are insightful and technically doable. Just need the political will to start working on it.
