Editorial Reviews

Review

Why have mainstream economists ignored environmental limits for solong? If Heinberg is right, they will have much explaining to do." --LESTER BROWN, Founder Earth Policy Institute

Heinberg shows how peak oil, peak water, peak food, etc. lead not onlyto the end of growth, but to the beginning of a new era of progresswithout growth. -- HERMAN E. DALY, Professor Emeritus, School of PublicPolicy, University of Maryland

By the time you finish this, you will have 2 conclusions: This is the end of economic growth and itis our problem, not our childrens'. It's time to get ready. This book is the place to start. --PAUL GILDING -- Former head of GreenpeaceInternational

Richard has rung the bell on the limits to growth.Our shift from quantity of consumption to quality of life is the greatchallenge of our generation. Frightening...but ultimately freeing.--JOHN FULLERTON - President and Founder, Capital Institute

From the Back Cover

As energy and food prices escalate and debt levels explode, paths thatformerly led to economic prosperty now lead to disaster. This bookproposes a startling diagnosis: the global economy has reached afundamental turning point--the end of growth. The Great Recession willnot end in "recovery." Still, we can thrive in coming years if weabandon the futile pursuit of growth in consumption and aim instead forimprovements in quality of life.

Richard Heinberg's latestlandmark work goes to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis,examining why it occurred, and what we must do to avert the worstpotential outcomes. Written in an engaging style, it shows why growthcan't continue in the face of resource depletion, environmentaldevastation, and mountains of debt.

The End of Growthre-evaluates cherished economic theories and describes whatpolicymakers, communities, and families can do to build a new economythat operates within Earth's budget of energy and resources. We canthrive during the transition if we set goals that promote human andenvironmental well-being, rather than pursuing the now-unattainableprize of ever-expanding GDP.
