Description - Social Limits to Growth by Fred Hirsch

This text on the deceleration of economic growth argues that the causes of this were essentially social rather than physical. As societies become richer, an increasing proportion of the extra goods and services created are not available to everybody. Material affluence does not, therefore, necessarily make for a better society. This exposition of the social limits to growth attempts to connect many of the apparently disparate factors that blight modern life: alienation at work and deteriorating cities as well as inflation and unemployment.
