My WFS2011 Talk: The Infinite Resource: Growing Prosperity While Reducing Impact on the Earth

I gave at talk this morning at the World Future Society 2011 Conference in Vancouver.   The talk was entitled The Infinite Resource:  Growing Prosperity While Reducing Impact on the Earth, and it looks at what the ultimate limits of growth and prosperity on this planet are, how we’ve gotten where we are, and how we choose the prosperous future rather than the one wrecked by climate change, ocean collapse, and peak oil.

This talk is also, by the way, more or less a summary of my forthcoming book due in 2012 of the same name.

    Good point about the externalities being neglected by the market, it’s a point my libertarian friends don’t like to accept.
