  • How Much is Enough? by Edward Skidelsky
    How Much is Enough? (English, Paperback) Edward Skidelsky, Robert Skidelsky

    Argues that wealth is not - or should not be - an end in itself, but a means to 'the good life'. Tracing the concept from Aristotle to the present, this book shows how far modern life has strayed from that ideal. It rejects the idea that there is any single measure of human progress, whether GDP or 'happiness'.
