In this David vs. Goliath story, filmmaker Dave Gardner dares to challenge a system hooked on growth. He takes on millionaire real-estate developers, economists, the Pope, and media moguls who spin pro-growth propaganda. Gardner’s efforts to wean his hometown from growth addiction launch us into an examination of the most critical global issue of our time. GrowthBusters challenges our beliefs linking growth with prosperity and fulfillment. It explores how our attitudes toward economic, consumption and population growth prevent rational responses to evidence we’ve outgrown the planet. Interviews with leading thinkers, animation and humorous skits debunk the “grow or die” myth.
