"The Club of Sienna has provided a helpful review, exposition, and extension of the Club of Rome's systems modeling approach, demonstrating the increasing relevance of the 1972 book The Limits to Growth to problems that continue today. Especially recommended for environmental studies and economics courses." - Herman E. Daly, University of Maryland, USA.

"This book creates the intellectual spine for the Club of Siena, walking in the footsteps of the famous Limits to Growth, but turns away from the fears of collapse towards showing that staying within the limits can offer agreeable, pleasant, even wonderful living conditions. An inspiring reading for those who believe in the need to change course." - Marina Fischer-Kowalski, Institute of Social Ecology, Vienna, Austria.

"A profound treatise of the fallacies of the growth paradigm. Plus good suggestions for flourishing within the limits. Good tax signals can make us more successful. Bravo!" - Ernst Ulrich von Weizsacker, Co-President, The Club of Rome, Emmendingen, Germany.
