|From The Publisher*|
In an urgent follow-up to his bestselling Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, Jeff Rubin argues that the end of cheap oil means the end of growth. What will it be like to live in a world where growth is over? Now updated with a new afterword.
|Review Quote*||"Clearly written and smartly argued." |
"Thought-provoking and accessible.... Rubin's wide-ranging examination of assorted energy issues, while scarcely cheerful reading, offers acerbic insights.... No-nonsense analysis."
"You have to hand it to Rubin: For a former bank economist, he writes in a way that is amazingly accessible... The book is well researched and logically written."
-Todd Hirsch, The Globe and Mail
"One of Canada's most respected economic thinkers."
