The faith economy ecology transformation working group has been focused on a number of issue that plague the world today. Basically, the drive to grow has caused us to outpace our planet. We recognize that the earth is showing signs of this wear and tear and we are committed to finding solutions that are sustainable, and that steer us away from the mad demand to grow and toward an economy of “enough.”
Our colleagues at The Center for the Advancement of a Steady State Economy (CASSE) have taken a lead and thinking through such solutions which they explore in a new book called Enough Is Enough. Authors Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill focus on solutions that come from creating a prosperous and stable steady-state economy, exploring specific strategies to limit resource use, stabilize population, achieve a fair distribution of income and wealth, reform the financial system, reduce unemployment, and more—all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits.
The book also provides some wisdom around changing consumer behavior and shifting the political conversation away from the misguided pursuit of economic growth and toward the things that really matter to people. Enough Is Enough serves as a great primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
Additionally, the first $5,000 in royalties will go directly to CASSE to support the grassroots effort to build a sustainable and fair economy; it’s been endorsed by Noam Chomsky and it moves beyond tired doom-and-gloom arguments. It’s got plenty of fresh ideas and surprising optimism, something like a primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
