True Wealth


A Time-Rich, Ecologically Light, Small Scale Economy

Juliet B. Schor

In True Wealth, economist Juliet B. Schor rejects the sacrifice mes-sage, with the insight that social innovations and new technology can simultaneously enhance our lives and protect the planet. Schor shares examples of urban farmers, DIY renovators, and others work-ing outside the conventional market to illuminate the path away from the work-and-spend cycle and toward a new world rich in time, creativity, information, and community.
