Growing through the storm
length: 1:00:00 credit: Radio Ecoshock download
Richard's interview begins at 45.00 mins.
In his new book The End of Growth, Adapting to Our New Economic Reality - Richard Heinberg looks at all the lies our politicians and economists tell us: "we'll get back to growing jobs and the economy any day now..."
No, this "recession" is not a temporary blip! The whole model of endless growth was a Ponzi scheme from the start. It is bound to fall into bankruptcy, unless we provide some new models for living.
Richard did a lot of radio interviews about the book. I tried to pick up on three things the others did not cover, that should interest you.
Other guests are "Peak Oil Shrink" psychologist Kathy McMahon, and urban homesteader Jules Dervaes.
