Eating the Earth: Why we need to change the way we do business with nature
By Justyn Walsh
Unversity of Queensland Press, $32.99
The story of the age of industrial capitalism as seen through the eyes of former investment banker and author Justyn Walsh, who examines the repercussions for humanity and the planet when natural resources are assumed to be in limitless supply and we are consuming as if there is no tomorrow.
The book is divided into five sections, with each one delving into the potential solutions for a world that is dealing with the fallout from decisions made at a time when human-made capital was scarce and natural capital plentiful.
