              "Economic growth is over for good and Fleeing Vesuvius is the first book to explore the profound, historic implications.. Its message could hardly be more urgent." Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute, Author, Peak Everything. "Some are in denial, others are in ...despair, then there are those who seek to meet the future in the drivers seat - those people will be reading this book" Laurence Boomert, Co-Publisher and one of the 39 essay writers in Fleeing Vesuvius. Fleeing Vesuvius confronts our multiple crises, analysing the many aspects: the financial crisis; the collapse of the housing bubble; the urgent need for food security; the enormous challenge of dealing with climate change, and the looming scarcity of essential resources such as fossil fuels - the lifeblood of the world economy. Fleeing Vesuvius puts forward solutions that involve changes to our economy and financial system, but they go much further: this substantial, wide-ranging book also looks at the changes needed in how we think, how we use the land and how we relate to others, particularly those where we live. While it doesn't discount the complexity of the problems we face, Fleeing Vesuvius is practical and fundamentally optimistic. It will arm readers with the confidence and knowledge they need to develop new, workable alternatives to the old-style expanding economy and its supporting systems. It's a book that can be read all the way through or used as a resource to dip in and out of. Fleeing Vesuvius was originally published in late 2010 by Feasta in response to Ireland's economic collapse. Its 27 authors including Dmitry Orlov and Richard Douthwaite are now joined by by 12 New Zealand contributors, making this book a compelling tool for all thinking New Zealanders concerned about the future.

              By Douthwaite, Richard

              This text explains why money has different effects according to its origins and purposes. It shows that to build a just and sustainable world, money creation must be democratized and the payment of interest on money in circulation scrapped.

              The Growth Illusion: How economic growth has enriched the few, impoverished the many and endangered the planet. (EPUB ebook)

              By Douthwaite, Richard

              Revised and reworked, this edition argues that since the 1950s, governments around the world have made economic growth their primary focus in the belief that by baking the biggest national cake, they are creating the resources needed to fulfill their political goals.

              By Douthwaite, Richard

              This collection of essays explores the consequences of economic growth in our globalised world. Economic growth corrupts a society in the way a cancer destroys the human body on which it feeds. Growth is simply an increase in the size of the monetarised part of the social arrange...ments by which we live, relate and support each other.
