Solutions: 'The Story of Stuff'

The 'Game of More' is not a Solution

In the current form of capitalism, we're told to cheer for a growing GDP -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting. But what if we changed the point of the game?

What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means?
