Joel Magnuson, author of The Approaching Great Transformationwill be in Portland at Powell’s City Books on Monday, March 11 at 7:30pm to discuss his upcoming book. 

The Approaching Great Transformation: Toward a Liveable Post Carbon Economy is Magnuson’s follow up to his previous book, Mindful EconomicsIn his second book, Magnuson extends his ideas and focuses on he coming shift in how we act and think in the world economically as the era of cheap oil comes to an end. The purpose of this book is to provide inspiration for those seeking the ongoing global effort to move away from our dependency on fossil fuels and ceaseless growth, and towards a more sustainable, stable, and just system.

“The Approaching Great Transformation is a breath of fresh air in a world of hackneyed nonsolutions to our social and economic problems. Professor Magnuson pulls no punches regarding the coming collapse of the corporate-commercial-consumer society, or the inability of technological fixes and ‘green capitalism’ to bail us out of the historical crunch that is virtually upon us.” -Morris Berman, author of Why America Failed

The Approaching Great Transformation will be out in April 2013.
