We talk to author Frank Rotering about his book 'Needs and Limits; A New Economic System for Sustainable Well-Being'.
We need a new economic system; corporate capitalism is a disaster. We need 'sustainable well-being', and 'needs and limits'; so this is the right time for these ideas.
Mr. Rotering suggests an economic system based on 'Contraction' and 'Equity' - A Contractionary Revolution. The economy has to get smaller, but if we share the changes we can avoid the problems of 'winners and losers' and create a more human and sustainable society. This is an important talk and book. It shows a way forward.
