Tired of being told to "go shopping" whenever a national or international crisis occurs?
Tired of hearing that "recycling" will save us?

Want to know how our so-called Consumer Society was manufactured?

Want to know more about the pathway to sustainability?

PS.. If I'm the last person on the block (the Planet?) to hear about The Story of Stuff—having heard about it over coffee just yesterday—chalk it up to the fact that I'm an old, retired economist living in Utah, just a small step on the far side of nowhere. But damned good scenery!
