symptoms of problems with the financial system, depleting world resources and
climate change. Nicole Foss presents a very accessible analysis of the predicament
that faces us all. No jargon. No esoteric technical terms. She predicts a challenging future - but also suggest actions we can all take to minimise its effects.
