Tim Jackson, Welvaart zonder groei

Professor Tim Jackson stelt de noodzaak van economische groei ter discussie én wat het betekent welvarend te zijn. Hij biedt ons alternatieven om vol aan het leven deel te nemen zonder een beroep te hoeven doen op een onhoudbare accumulatie van materiële dingen. Hij biedt ons een perspectief op een transitie naar een ecologisch geletterde macro-economie, een verzoening van een goed leven met een eindige planeet.

Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff

Annie Leonard tracks the life of the Stuff we use every day—where our cotton T-shirts, laptop computers, and aluminum cans come from, how they are produced, distributed and consumed, and where they go when we throw them out. Like Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, The Story of Stuff is a landmark book that will change the way people think—and the way they live.

Now, preeminent environmental scientists Donella Meadows, Jørgen Randers, and Dennis Meadows have teamed up again to update and expand their original findings in Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update.
