The Economy of Enough : A Better Plan Than 'Endless Growth'

The Economy of Enough : A Better Plan Than 'Endless Growth' | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Feb 25, 2012 Common Dreams

-▶  To build a successful economy of enough, we would first need to eliminate the "growth imperative"—...

.....The thinking is that if we could just get people to produce and consume more stuff, then we could also pay off the debt, create jobs, eradicate poverty, and maybe even have some money left over to clean up the environment.

It's tempting to believe this economic fairy tale.  But if growth is the cure to all of our ills, why are we in such a bind after sixty years of it?  Even though the U.S. economy has more than tripled in size since 1950, surveys indicate that people have not become any happier.  Inequality has risen sharply in recent years, and jobs are far from secure.  At the same time, increased economic activity has led to greater resource use, dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and declining biodiversity.  There is now strong evidence that economic growth has become uneconomic in the sense that it costs more than it's worth.

Maybe it's time to consider a new strategy—an economy of enough http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/02/25-1
