When Growth Outpaces Happiness

When Growth Outpaces Happiness | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
It is startling to find that Chinese people’s feelings of well-being have declined in a period of such momentous improvement in their economic lives.

 

Richard Easterlin in NY Times: China demonstrates that "growth alone, even at sustained, spectacular rates, has not produced the kind of life satisfaction crucial to a stable society — an experience that shows how critically important good jobs and a strong social safety net are to people’s happiness."

 

Another piece of evidence that it is time for a new economic and social development model.

Social Innovations for Economic Degrowth

Social Innovations for Economic Degrowth | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

"... a growing community of scientists and social activists, sharing the basic insight that a reduction of energy and material use implies a reduction of gross domestic product (GDP), is gathering under the heading of sustainable degrowth.3 Degrowth obviously entails a fundamental transformation of economic structures. But what precisely are the necessary steps?"

 

Very good article in Solutions Journal on the need to scale up social innovations for sustainable degrowth if we want to move from the failing growth paradigm to a new paradigm of the good life.
