not yet rated|write a review
First published in 1967, The Costs of Economic Growth was based on the central conviction that the official figures for growth in real income were entirely compatable with a decline in human welfare. Twenty-five years later, this work remains the most persuasive and systematic demolition of the religion of growth yet published, its arguments only reinforced by the growing social and environmental problems of the late twentieth century. For this new edition, the text has been revised and updated in the light of recent global perils and environmental degradation.
