The economies of virtually all nations require growth to function. Yet more growth makes the wealthiest even wealthier, while unemployment, hunger, and violence are widespread, and human economies, in aggregate, are already larger than Earth’s ecosystems can continue to support. It’s the Economy, Friends is aimed at understanding the dilemma that the unremitting drive for growth creates within the limited ecosystems of Earth.
