Debates about global warming, a growing shortage of clean water, deforestation, pollution, degradation of the oceans, biodiversity and waste permeate public spaces and private discussions.

Unsustainable growth is the underlying force driving all these crises yet is virtually absent from public discourse. Since World War II, growth or growing production has become a mantra, an unquestionable axiom, for political, business and economic leaders as a means to strengthen the economy. Tragically, no distinction is discerned between sustainable and unsustainable growth. This books explores why unsustainable growth is unrealistic and catastrophic and examines its consequences on people and the earth. In addition to analyzing the environmental impact, the book will examine the unequal distribution of wealth resulting from capitalism and unsustainable growth.
