About the book:
Stimulating growth through adjusting macroeconomic conditions remains the principal policy response to pressing problems of unemployment, poverty and environmental degradation. However, the current growth trajectory has neither led to a reduction of our overall resource use – as we use resources and energy more efficiently we consume more – nor created the conditions for full employment and increasing wellbeing.
Growth in Transition presents detailed key arguments for reconsidering the conditions for sustainable economies, with an international cast of commentators from politics, administration, civil society, business and science.
