Growth Busters logoA ‘not to be missed’ film!

In this David vs. Goliath story, filmmaker Dave Gardner shares his own personal story of daring to challenge our growth-worshipping system. He is rebuked by elected officials who are deacons of the church of growth everlasting. He takes on millionaire real estate developers enriched by public growth subsidies, and he tackles economists who spin pro-growth propaganda.

Providing a ray of hope, the film also profiles groups and individuals exploring alternatives and moving the world toward true sustainability.
