TIM JACKSON, Imagining a just sustainable future-POST GROWTH: Life After Capitalism

In the words of today’s guest, TIM JACKSON, Director of the UK’s Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity, “The finite planet we call home is being altered perhaps irreversibly by the massive human activity that parades under the seductive banner of progress.” But how do we replace the current model of not just commerce – but almost of reality – with a new one that is at least as inviting and more effective at fulfilling human and planetary needs? And how do we do it in time? Jackson’s new book, POST GROWTH: Life After Capitalism, lays out the problem and envisions a way of life beyond our addiction to material growth.
