Bill McKibben's Deep Economy is a must-read in my opinion. It presents a straightforward critique of the way we've come to organize our lives today and then continues to suggest how we might fix things by investing in communities and building local economies. My only complaint was that on occasion, he fails to critique the GDP-measurement issue strongly enough. But to me, all is forgiven because he ultimately provides a sense of hope which is something I feel we're going to need a lot of in the future.
