This beautifully drawn 5-minute video provides a vision of what a post-consumer society could look like, with people working fewer hours and pursuing re-skilling, homesteading, and small-scale enterprises that can help reduce the overall size and impact of the consumer economy.
The video is narrated by economist and bestselling author Juliet Schor, based on her book Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth.
