He has not changed his mind about that, but updates his evidence and argument to integrate the subsequent economic turmoil and how it signals economic maturity that reinforces the danger posed by ecological maturity. Among his perspectives are vision for the 21st century, where value is neglected and overstated, monetary reform, and working together as societies. (Annotationc2010 Book News, Inc.)
