Why time and again, we choose economic growth
In The Value Crisis, Andrew Welch offers a unique perspective on these questions. He reveals how the unprecedented dominance of numbers and number-based values in our world has relegated our time-honoured human values to the wayside.
This timely book explores human motivations, the power of numbers, and the role of value systems in our everyday lives. Through provocative insights, engaging personal anecdotes, and new theories, The Value Crisis shows us that by getting back to fundamental human values, we might just save our world.
