About this book

This book is concerned with the future of civilization, in particular with the conflict between economic growth and the sustainability of the biophysical life support systems of the planet, arguing that the flawed system of orthodox neo-classical economics has justified the modernist belief in the necessity of unending economic growth and the ceaseless exploitation of nature.
