Description

Details

The world’s addiction to economic growth continues with barely any recognition that this is a problem. Indeed, in a Western world currently dominated by austerity measures and ducking in and out of recession, growth is seen even by progressives as the only possible solution for our economic and social woes. This No-Nonsense Guide looks deeper into the idea of economic growth – to trace its history and understand why it has become so unchallengeable and powerful. And then it goes beyond that to present the alternative – how we can kick our dirty habit, how degrowth can be turned into a positive and how we can arrive at a new levels of environmental sustainability without having to turn the clock back to the Dark Ages. About the Author Wayne Ellwood is a former co-editor at New Internationalist magazine. He is the author of the best-selling No-Nonsense Guide to globalization. He has worked as an associate producer with the BBC television series Global Report and has edited the reference book The A-Z of World Development. He lives in Toronto where he now works as a freelance editorial consultant and writer.
