Enough Is Enough

Enough Is Enough lays out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more. Based on the best-selling book by Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill, the film explores specific strategies to fix the financial system, reduce inequality, create jobs, and more. Drawing on the expertise of Tim Jackson, Kate Pickett, Andrew Simms, Natalie Bennett, and Ben Dyson, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.

Economic growth, with all of its downsides, is clearly unsustainable in the 21st century.  Long-term recession is no panacea either.  A steady state economy is the sustainable alternative to perpetual economic growth.

Economic growth was never a magic bullet; it is simply an increase in the production and consumption of goods and services — it can’t possibly lead to a sustainable outcome.  In contrast the steady state economy provides the means for present and future generations to achieve a high quality of life.  For more detailed information, read Enough Is Enough.

The Act of Discovery

Many people, upon discovering the steady state economy, experience one of two reactions:

  1. Relief and joy at having found a viable way for dealing with the daunting problems society faces, including climate disruption, dwindling natural resources, widespread poverty, economic collapse, and species extinctions.
  2. Doubt and denial due to old habits of thought, misconceptions about what a steady state economy is, and fear of change.

Please take time to discover the steady state economy for yourself I hope that you will join me in supporting a new and better way of achieving true sustainability. The impeccable logic and sound science of steady state economics have moved many people from the second reaction to the first.
