The growth of the economy and the spread of prosperity are increasingly seen as problematic rather than positive - a trend Daniel Ben-Ami has termed 'growth scepticism'. Prosperity is accused of encourage greed, damaging the environment, causing unhappiness and widening social inequalities.

Ferraris for all: A defence of economic progress is a rejoinder to the growth sceptics. Using examples from a range of countries, including the US, the author argues that society as a whole benefits from greater affluence.

Action is needed - but to increase abundance and spread it worldwide, not to limit prosperity, as the sceptics would have it.

The lively and provocative hardback edition was published to widespread coverage in 2010, and triggered debate and dissent in equal measure.
