Description

In his 1983 classic The Poverty of Affluence, Paul Wachtel examines the psychological underpinnings of our insatiable desire for growth, and endless quest for "more"--whether in jobs, relationships, or any other sphere of life--suggesting that our commitment to consumption is in fact an increasingly desperate attempt to replace the sense of community that our very growth has torn apart.
