“THE COMING COLLAPSE AND TRANSFORMATION OF OUR WORLD”
I found this to be one of the best books I’ve ever read in relation to the issue of population and a sustainable world. I do have one slight disagreement with the author – that is, he believes we need a new economic system based on idealism and co-operation. I would love to have that if it would work, however I don’t think it would. Human beings seem to have evolved to be motivated by self-interest and self-preservation. I believe our present free-enterprise, capitalistic system can work without growth. It simply requires regulation. Capitalism can simply evolve and prosper not through increasing numbers of consumers, but by improving efficiencies (plublished by New Society Publishers, 2008)
