Affluenza the All Consuming Epidemic

by

Affluenza the All Consuming Epidemic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In chapters with titles like ""Swollen Expectations"" and ""A Rash of Bankruptcies, "" Affluenza uses the whimsical metaphor of a disease to tackle a very serious subject: the damage done — to our health, our families, our communities, and our environment — by the obsessive quest for material gain. The authors examine the origins, evolution, and symptoms of the affluenza epidemic. But more importantly, they explore cures and suggest strategies for rebuilding families and communities and for restoring and respecting the earth.

Synopsis:

This text is about personal, social, economic and environmental costs of over-consumption, and what we can do to beat the "all-consuming bug". The authors assert that we're already giving up the good life, by sacrificing personal health and sanity, family closeness and ecological stability.
