IN THIS SUMMARY

There is a dark side to economic growth. The relentless pursuit of “more” has ushered in some of humanity’s greatest advances, but a toll has been exacted from the environment and the citizens of the globe. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill issue a rally cry for a new economy and a new reality. They advocate a transition to a “steady-state economy,” where exponential growth and resource exploitation surrenders to lives lived within ecological and social limits. In this brave new world, gross domestic product (GDP) measurements and the mania of the stock market are replaced by the codification of human ideas such as happiness, comfort, contentment, and peace. Lifestyles must downshift, the environment must be properly cared for, and social inequality must be redirected toward oblivion.
