More > overcome by mean of a “happy de-growth”, a popular way of thinking. The answer is overall not optimistic, and the concept of limit for the availability of the natural resources on the earth is said to be inevitable. Due to this limit, a new model of development needs be adopted. On one hand it is very positive that the number of who in the world is today able to have better life conditions more than doubled due to delocalisation, a result that must be applauded. On the other hand the new situation prevents from ensuring the previous possibility of a constant and continuous increase of the economic development indexes in each Country and every year.< Less

This book shows how mainstream economic theory is fundamentally flawed. It shows how the expectation for endless growth is so deeply ingrained into what we expect the future to be that we do not even... More > question the assumption. But this work, rather than follow an ecological path to explore limits to growth, is an “inside job” that shows that when modern economic growth theories are decoupled from assumptions that have no basis in how the real world is developing, but are, for the most part, mathematical conveniences applied for the sake of “stability”, then the long-run economic outcome is no longer capitalism. Decision makers assume that changes today will lead to predictable and/or reversible outcomes. This is a myth. There are fallacies throughout the assumptions of predictability, reversibility, and endless growth. When reasoning is based upon a flawed foundation, bad choices can appear reasonable. This work shows that the future is not what it is supposed to be.< Less

More > hypothesis: If we got supply to actually meet demand in the labor market on the individual level and if we eliminated private monopolies (most notably that of land), we would have an economic system that is fair, self-stabilizing, sustainable and growth-independent, without limiting desired growth.

Take a leap down the rabbit hole into how the quirks of our language, moral biases, as well as the religious nature of politics and economics can make us miss fairly obvious solutions to big problems.
