Enough is enough

Ideas for a Sustainable Economy in a World of Finite Resources

Enough is Enough is a collection of policy initiatives, tools, and reforms for an economy that makes enough its goal instead of more.

The report, generated from the inspirational ideas of the Steady State Economy Conference, consists of three parts:

  • Part One describes why economic growth is becoming an obsolete goal and provides a crystal-clear description of the desirable alternative — a steady state economy;
  • Part Two examines ten key areas where change is needed to achieve a steady state economy;
  • Part Three provides a blueprint for moving boldly from ideas to action.

Please read the report, discuss the ideas contained in it, and do what you can to help get us on the path to a better economy. If you are interested in engaging with others in online discussions of report topics, then please visit the SteadyStaters Google Group and request an invitation to join.

Gentle disclaimer: While nef endorses many of the ideas in this report, we do not hold the same views about overpopulation. For nef’s position on demographics, please see our report Consumption Explosion.
