Is Growth Good?

Arts & Letters Daily recently linked to a book review that captured my attention. The book, Ferraris for All by Daniel Ben-Ami, (available on July 14) offers a counter to much of the criticism of economic growth that we've heard and read over the past several years, even before the recession hit.

We've heard about many of the concerns: humanitarian, environmental, emotional and psychological. Ben-Ami's take is that all of these are ways of disguising a growth skepticism that might cause us to miss the opportunities to advance through growth.

It looks like it will be an interesting read. I hope to get the chance to read it. If I do, I'll review it and give you a better take on it.
