Curing Affluenza: How to Buy Less Stuff and Save the World
Richard Denniss

Paperback $27.99 - Black Inc
Philosophy, Politics & Current Affairs - Published: 30/Oct/2017 - ISBN: 9781863959414

In a book of ideas, Richard Denniss shows we must distinguish between consumerism, the love of buying things, which is undeniably harmful to us and the planet, and materialism, the love of things, which can in fact be beneficial. We should cherish the things we own, preserve them and repair them. We need to foster new ways of thinking and acting that do not squander limited resources, and which support the things we value most- vibrant communities and rich experiences. With contributions from Bob Brown, Kumi Naidoo, Marilyn Waring, Jim Stanford, Bill McKibben and others.
