"Wherever we live, however we do so, we desperately need a prophet of responsibility; and although the days of the prophets seem past to many of us, Berry may be the closest to one we have. But, fortunately, he is also a poet of responsibility. He makes one believe that the good life may not only be harder than what we're used to but sweeter as well." âe* The New York Review of Books

In Home Economics , Berry explores this process and continues to discuss what it means to make oneself "responsibly at home." As he argues, a measure of the health of the planet is economics--the health of its households.
