  1. [...] my textbook, and following Schor’s earlier work, I talk broadly about three policies, beyond pricing energy correctly, that might reduce private [...]

  2. I used to be suggested this blog by my cousin. I’m now not certain whether or not this post is written through him as nobody else recognise such designated approximately my difficulty. You are amazing! Thank you!

    I have been teaching Born to Buy in a research writing class at the University of North Dakota. I have noticed that it comes with two different covers–one with a young girl shopping, and one showing a baby inside a shopping bag. I have the one with the little girl. Is the baby-in-a-bag cover indicative of a new edition? The publication date seems to be the same but I want to make sure that if the book has been updated, I am using the most recent edition.

    Thanks so much.

    So far as I know the hardback is the one with the baby in the bag, the paperback is the girl shopping. The books are the same, but I did add a forward to the paperback. Are you
    finding two different covers within either hard or soft?

  5. Juliet Schor says:

    No the baby in the bag is my previous book, Born to Buy, about marketing to kids.
    Plenitude is the hardback.
    True Wealth is the paperback.
    Blame the publisher! They wanted to change the title.
