Riassunto: LaConte's book offers a compelling answer to the now-universal question suggested by her subtitle. The global economy has gone viral. It is ravaging Earth's equivalent of an immune system the way HIV ravages the human immune system, triggering a Critical Mass of AIDS-like mutually reinforcing environmental, economic, social and political crises that are undermining the ability of human and natural communities to support, protect and heal themselves. LaConte's prognosis? Since Life rules, we don't, Life will last but Life as we know it-and a lot of us-won't. LaConte shows that Life learned two billion years ago how to deal with pathological economies: it put them out of business. It encoded in other-than-human species a set of Economic Rules for Survival that allow them to live within Earth's means long term. In accessible prose LaConte explains how those rules can work for humans too. Recommended as a tool for community transition and cultural transformation, Life Rules offers a solution to our global crisis the publishers call "authentically conserve-ative, deeply Green, and profoundly liberating."

Dal retro di copertina: WHY SO MUCH IS GOING WRONG EVERYWHERE AT ONCE AND HOW LIFE TEACHES US TO FIX IT

There are no easy answers to the present challenge of overcoming the obstacles to the survival of our species, but LaConte?s book offers the wisdom we need to face up to it. --James Robertson, Founder, new economics foundation, and author of Future Money; Future Work; Future Wealth

This book succeeds in being both comprehensive and inspiring in its diagnosis and prescription. -- Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute, and author of The End of Growth

In much the same way HIV ravages the human body, the global economy has ravaged the planet triggering a Critical Mass of economic and climate instability, collapsing ecosystems, peak fossil fuels and devastating resource wars. Life Rules offers a comprehensive analysis of our present circumstances combined with a holistic treatment protocol for restoring health to vulnerable human and natural communities.

Author Ellen LaConte identifies natural laws that have allowed non-human communities to thrive and prosper for several billion years, including:
• Local self-reliance
• Mutual interdependence
• Reliance on non-fossil sources of energy
• Resource conservation, sharing and recycling
• Co-operation and co-intelligence
• Radically democratic self-organization and governance.

This sobering yet essentially optimistic manifesto is required reading for anyone concerned about our ability to live well and also within Earth's means. A powerful tool for community transition and cultural transformation, Life Rules offers a solution to our global challenges that is at once authentically hopeful, deeply inspiring and profoundly liberating.

If there were someone with authority to require all candidates for high public office to read certain books in preparation for the responsibilities they aspire to undertake, Ellen LaConte?s Life Rules should be high on the list of urgently required reading. -- William R. Catton, Jr., author of Overshoot

Life Rules is a tour de force and a book to carry with you in the years to come.-- Chellis Glendinning, author of My Name Is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization
