Best selling author David Wann presents 17 forms 
of “real wealth” that can eradicate affluenza, a 
pandemic he helped diagnose in the book, 
Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic. “When we 
change a few key priorities and values, such as 
what we mean by the word “success,” many of our 
material wants will cease to be obsessions,” says 
Wann. “Instead of fidgety, addictive consumption, 
our lives can be filled with the real wealth of 
sanity, health, hope, caring, connection, participation, and purpose.”


Sounds too good to be true? Wann’s new book, 
Simple Prosperity , Finding Real Wealth in a 
Sustainable Lifestyle www. davewann .com , draws 
on the latest research to document how social 
connections, good health, contact with nature, 
stimulating work, leisure time, great 
neighborhoods, and other forms of real wealth can 
build up our immunity to affluenza. “As a result, 
we become less vulnerable to the borrow-and-spend 
mentality that’s backed the U.S. economy into a 
corner,” says Wann. “By reevaluating many aspects 
of daily life, including what we eat, where we 
live, and what we buy, we’re starting to imagine 
what a joyfully moderate, efficient, 
compassionate lifestyle will look like. The good 
news is that curing the pandemic of 
over-consumption at both the personal and 
cultural scale is not about giving up the good life but getting it back.”

David Wann is president of the non-profit 
Sustainable Futures Society, a board member of 
the Cohousing Association of the U.S., and a 
fellow of the Simplicity Forum, an association of 
writers and thinkers on the topic of sensible, 
sustainable lifestyles. Wann has received various 
lifetime achievement awards for his work on 
sustainability. He’s been an passionate gardener 
for 25 years and coordinates the community garden 
in the neighborhood he helped design – Harmony 
Village in Golden, Colorado. He’s written nine 
books and produced many award-winning TV programs 
and videos on sustainable design and sustainable lifestyles.
