Economist and resource analyst Jeff Rubin is certain that the world's governments are getting it wrong. Instead of moving us toward economic recovery, measures being taken around the globe right now are digging us into a deeper hole. Both politicians and economists are missing the fact that the real engine of economic growth has always been cheap, abundant fuel and resources. But that era is over. The end of cheap oil, Rubin argues, signals the end of growth--and the end of easy answers to renewing prosperity. The End of Growth is the urgent follow-up to his best-selling Why Your World Is About To Get A Whole Lot Smaller. Join us for a conversation on the new reality: Rubin argues that our world is not only about to get smaller, our day-to-day lives are about to be a whole lot different.
