This work reviews the most recent evidence on major global problems, examining resource and energy scarcity, environmental destruction, Third World underdevelopment, international conflict, and the deteriorating quality of life. The author argues these problems are ultimately generated by the West's commitment to affluence and growth inherent in its economic system. Only fundamental social change, not technical solutions, can provide the solution.
