"... a postgrowth economy isn’t just an economy that isn’t growing – it’s an economy that doesn’t require growth. You can’t create a sustainable economy by switching growth off and hoping for the best. It has to be designed, including new forms of finance and new institutions to manage them, action on inequality and debt, new tax systems and much more besides. It’s a proactive, strategic, and long term project. A sustainable economy will take decades to evolve, and will involve every sector of society."
Good article on the recession and the post-growth society on the MakeWealthHistory blog.
