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 enough, not more. 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.

"Humans seem to be intent on confirming the argument of biologist Ernst Mayr that higher intelligence may be a lethal mutation. But the grim prognosis is not inevitable. This lucid, informed, and highly constructive book not only outlines where we are heading, but also shows that with the will to act, solutions can be found to construct a steady-state economy geared to human needs." - Noam Chomsky, Professor emeritus at MIT and author of over 100 books "Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill bring clarity and style to their impassioned and meticulous analysis - showing up the impossible logic of a continued desire for economic growth. Their vision of a steady-state economy, and their practical focus on how we achieve it, is a significant roadmap, offering the way to a better quality of life and sustainable future for all of us and the planet." - Kate Pickett, Professor of Epidemiology, University of York, co-author of 'The Spirit Level', and co-founder of The Equality Trust "In Enough Is Enough, Dietz and O'Neill have accomplished something special. They offer a hopeful and practical plan for righting the economic and environmental ship, and they do it in a very engaging way. I hope my colleagues in parliament are paying close attention to the ideas in this book-I know I am." - Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion and former leader of the Green Party of England and Wales "What scope is there for moving beyond today's increasingly desperate pursuit of conventional economic growth? For politicians to carve out some real space in that territory, they need to immerse themselves in the "beyond growth" debate, and there is no better way of doing that than familiarizing themselves with the ideas and insights in Enough is Enough." - Jonathon Porritt, Founder and director of the Forum for the Future and author of 'Capitalism as if the World Matters' "This is the book we've all been waiting for, as we watch the growth economy collide catastrophically with the constraints of a finite Earth. It's a clear, informed, practical, honorable and witty guide to where we are, where we need to go, and how to get there. If you are one of so many of us who are bewildered or despairing about the fate of the future, this is the book that will give you an energized sense of purpose and reason-based hope." - Kathleen Dean Moore, Professor of philosophy at Oregon State University, author of 'The Pine Island Paradox', and co-editor of 'Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril' "We need a world where sustainable human well-being is the primary goal, not the insane delusion of infinite growth. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill tell us how to get there. It is the most readable description of the fundamental problems with the "growth at all costs" economic paradigm and how focusing on "enough" material consumption can make room for all the other things that contribute to human well-being. If you've had enough of the crazy economics of growth for the 1%, at the expense of well-being for the 99% and the planet, then this is the book for you." - Robert Costanza, Professor of Sustainability, Portland State University and chief editor of 'Solutions' magazine "Enough is Enough is a fine addition to a growing literature on how society might change its ways and actually avoid catastrophic collapse. Everyone should read it and become more aware of the scale of the human predicament, the economic insanity that is largely responsible for it, and the desperate need for dramatic change." - Paul Ehrlich, Professor of population studies at Stanford University, President of the Center for Conservation Biology, and co-author of 'The Dominant Animal' "Dietz and O'Neill create a remarkable vision-a world with enough prosperity and happiness for everyone, not just for a few. This book will restore your hope in the future and give you specific things
