Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth

Juliet Schor

About the Program

Juliet Schor says that the U.S. would be much better off and more economically secure if Americans shifted their thinking on what constitutes a good life.  She argues for increasing leisure time, changing our consumption habits, and moving towards small scale economies.  Prof. Schor spoke in Portland, Oregon, at an event hosted by Illahee (illahee.org).
