Reality Report: Peter Lawrence and Jim Merkel


As the economy shrinks so does our consumption. Do we view this as a bad thing or an opportunity? Jim Merkel, (author of Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth) and Peter Lawrence (author of The Happy Minimalist) chose to earn less money and live more simply. We’ll find out how they do it, and how they like it on the Reality Report. You can visit their websites at www.radicalsimplicity.org and www.thehappyminimalist.net, respectively.
