Prosperity Without Growth

When

So much of the analysis of how we respond to climate change assumes that economic growth and emissions reduction are compatible goals. But is this wishful thinking? To question maximising economic growth as an organising principle of society seems close to economic heresy. But is there any evidence that we can de-link consumption and economic growth from emissions growth? Must we re-think the very notion of growth and what it means to be genuinely prosperous?

As in his effusively reviewed book Prosperity Without Growth, Professor Tim Jackson helps us both understand and chart a course to a new, truly rich and lasting human prosperity.
