This review is from: Wealth of Nature (Paperback)
A very accessible, well-written book about what is fundamentally wrong with our economics and the economy of the modern world. It is non-technical and jargon-free. It explains why we have got into the situation we are in with 'hallucinatory' money having become by far the largest section of the economies of developed countries and how this is becoming disastrously out-of-step with the realities of the resources available from the physical world, in particular the availability of fossil-fuels. He charts the road ahead in a contracting economy after the 'age of abundance' which has effectively come to an end and makes some very sound suggestions for measures that could be taken by governments, communities and individuals to cope with the difficult times we are in and the even more difficult times that lie ahead. Buy this book and buy an extra copy and send it to your MP - this book could help make a difference to our future.
