Description

For decades our political leaders and opinion makers have touted higher incomes as the way to a better future but after many years of sustained economic growth and increased personal incomes we must confront an awful fact: we aren't any happier. In this provocative new book, Clive Hamilton argues that, far from being the answer to our problems, growth fetishism and the marketing society lie at the heart of our social ills. Growth Fetish is the first serious attempt at a politics of change for rich countries dominated by sicknesses of affluence, where the real yearning is not for more money but for authentic identity, and where the future lies in creating a society that promotes the things that really do improve our well-being. 'Right on target and badly needed.' Noam Chomsky
