Can human beings, driven by greed and materialism, ever evolve enough to create a truly egalitarian society that ensures the common good? Academic Robert Costanza, along with his co-authors at the journal Solutions, says that it is not only possible but already happening. This idealistic yet thought-provoking essay spells out the requirements for “sustainable well-being” and shines a spotlight on worldwide initiatives to replace GDP growth with alternative goals. getAbstract suggests this visionary report to policy experts, economists and utopians.
