Prosperity without economic growth: is it possible?
Tonight my guests are Donnie Maclurcan and Darrell Wheeler as we explore paths to global prosperity that don’t rely on economic growth.
Dr Donnie Maclurcan is Co-Founder of the Post Growth Institute which is described as follows:
Post Growth is a catalyst for identifying, inspiring and implementing new approaches to global well-being.
Our Mission is to build and empower a broad-based global movement dedicated to bringing about futures beyond economic growth.
Our second guest for the night, Darrell Wheeler, is an exponent of Steiner's three-fold social theory, which we discussed on a previous TNRA show.
Post growth is further defined:
Post growth is about developing human potential, wellbeing and happiness within, and in relation to, a physically finite earth. It’s about putting life and everything needed to maintain it at the center of economic and social activity, instead of the never-ending accumulation of money, and the pursuit of growth of all kinds without regard for the consequences.
We would like to emphasise that the theories and viewpoints presented on this show do not necessarily represent the viewpoints of TNRA. In particular, we have some concern over such terms as "post-growth" as they play into the hands of the green movement which, in our opinion, is deeply compromised by tendenceis towards carbon taxes and eco-fascism - which we unreservedly abhor.
Nonetheless, this discussion presents interesting angles on the current global economic situation - and I'm sure you will find it very engaging!
