Enough is Enough! Building a sustainable economy in a world of finite resources

Something slightly different, above is a short, but extremely informative film on steady state economics and how to build a sustainable economy in a finite world.

The film is a companion piece to the recent book By Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill, which is well worth a read. For those wishing to learn more about steady state economics the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy is an excellent resource.

Full disclosure, Dan O’Neill is a friend (he is a Canadian, but I found it in my heart to forgive him) and I had a small role in the oganisation of the Steady State Economics Conference and resulting document on which the book is based.

  2. … and Dan is an MES alumnus of my department at Dalhousie University, the School for Resource and Environmental Studies! Thanks to Rob and Dan for the video companion to their book, which is going straight on the curriculum for my undergraduate course, and to Dave for his open-mindedness viz-a-viz Canadians.

  3. Indeed as well as being a graduate of Dalhousie and the co-author of this excellent book, Dan is also a talented musician, a fine cook and an all round good egg. None of this however excuses his wanton and (in my opinion entirely unnecessary) Canadianism, Canadianity? Canadianismus?

    Bloody Canadians with their, polite good manners, friendly attitudes and relaxed lifestyles, it is enough to make my blood boil.

  4. Great video! Now I will definitely have to check out the book. I have always been interested in making myself more sustainable in building, lighting, and overall energy practices. Thanks for your contribution, can’t wait to here more from you guys.
