Welcome to ethify.org
How can we measure wealth? Which values are relevant today? How can we reach balance in private and job life? Do we need a new currency system? How can we better co-operate?
Ethify Yourself is a community promoting an ethical lifestyle and good working conditions. Nine values are being proposed. The portal offers a number of book reviews, AdBusters and film recommendations for applied and business ethic topics.

Der Methodenmix besteht aus
"We live in an era of stagnation, rapid impoverishment, rising inequalities and socio-ecological disasters. In the dominant discourse, these are effects of economic crisis, lack of growth or underdevelopment. This book argues that growth is the cause of these problems and that it has become uneconomic, ecologically unsustainable and intrinsically unjust."
This book is a valuable contribution to the academic discussion to design an economic system without the need for growth. ‘Simplicity’ is very closely connected to ‘conviviality’ and has an effect on the way we are living. Several aspects are being touched in 51 chapters, among them: Anti-utilitarianism, Care, Commodification, Commons, Depoliticization, Happines, Disobedience, Urban gardening, Buen Vivir or Ubuntu.
