The Approaching Great Transformation: Toward a Livable Post by Joel Magnuson

By Joel Magnuson

"A brave publication by way of a wise individual with a masterful command of monetary theory."—Publisher's Weekly

How may still we act and imagine economically on the planet because the period of inexpensive oil involves an finish? The forthcoming nice Transformation begins to reply to this huge query, targeting the folks and groups already at paintings at the transition: strength descent pioneers within the united kingdom and the U.S. instructing their groups in regards to the highway forward, small organisations defying conventional  “profit” in prefer of permanence and sustainability, and towns getting ready for a publish carbon future.
Highlighting the paintings of thinkers like John Ruskin and E. F. Schumacher, Magnuson right here builds on his earlier book, Mindful Economics
