Abstract

The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics.?Neva Goodwin expects the next sixty-five years to be a time of rapid change in America and worldwide. Based on the best projections available, the energy sources we rely on today will become increasingly scarce and expensive, and the percentage of the population that is of working age will diminish. The likely result of this, for the U.S. at least, is “a future with less stuff per household.” But while some outcomes are largely out of our control, Goodwin argues that the opportunity still exists, maybe more so than ever before, to make the best of this imminent period of change by finding alternative energy sources, recognizing the importance of the commons, learning to live within our means, spending more time on leisure, and reforming and/or reining in corporations.
