A Prosperous Way Down shows our world can thrive and prosper in a future where we live with less. It charts a way for our modern civilization to diminish without a crash. The authors make recomendations for a more eqitable and cooperative world society. They make specific sugestions based on upon their evaluations of trends in global population, wealth distribution, energy resources, conservation, urban development, capitalism and international trade, information, technology, and education.
Faced with increased shortages of energy, the world economy will have to stop growing soon and descend to a lower level that is sustainable.
