This book is academic, but quite honestly is easier to read than Daly and Farley's textbook "Ecological Economics." What it shows is that commoditization has profound effects on society and how we value things. Something that is easy to make into a commodity will get all the support, just because someone can make money by selling it; things which are harder to turn into commodities (and Manno explains what these are and why they are that way), will not get support. So our society is turning into a society of commodities. It also shows what we need to do to get out of this trap. ( )
