In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with Richard Heinberg to discuss:

  • Power: Richard’s new book
  • How will humans deal with Earth’s limits to growth?
  • Can capitalism exist in a de-growth economy?
  • How solvable an issue is population growth?

In the final stages of writing his newest book, Power: Limits and Prospects for Human Survival, resource management expert Richard Heinberg joins us to share its principal conclusions.

Richard will be offering a few free chapters of the book in advance of its September launch, paired with an online discussion series. If you’re interested in participating, send an email to asking to “sign me up for Power”

This was an excellent discussion, especially because Richard was game for letting me toss him a few “hot potato” semi-controversial questions about capitalism and population management.

That’s one of the benefits of Peak Prosperity’s premium content; we and our guest experts are able to talk more freely about many of these important challenges than we can in public forums.

The rest is exclusive content for members
