The economists view for growth is “Consume more for economic growth,” which essentially means “extract everything more so that we can consume and grow” but not prosperity and happiness.
This is breeding a phenomenon called consumerism…. All is consumption—everything, every day, everywhere. We think consumerism is the way to prosperity.
The simplicity and conscious choice making has taken a back seat. The Author has brought this point in front again in simple words. Moreover, consumerism and robotic way of living our life is a major cause of ecological issues.
The Author beautifully brings back the value system of lives to treat earth as our home.
