GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth

Web       http://www.growthbusters.org

This film examines the cultural barriers that prevent us from reacting rationally to the evidence current levels of population and consumption are unsustainable.

It asks why the population conversations are so difficult to have. Why itís more important to our society to have economic growth than clean air. Why communities seek and subsidize growth even when it destroys quality of life and increases taxes.

Our growth-centric system is broken. Itís not providing the happiness or the prosperity we seek. But thatís good news; it means a shift to a sustainable model will be good for us. Weíll be happier and more prosperous!
