Prosperity without growth

Posted by Jeroen van Agt in Economics No Comments»

Very interesting interview on the Dutch television with the Britisch Professor of Sustainable Development at University of Surrey how we can have prosperity without growth. On a final planet we cannot have continuous growth, therefore we need to think in other solutions.

Tim Jackson currently serves as the economics commissioner on the UK government’s Sustainable Development Commission and is director of RESOLVE — the Research group on Lifestyles, Values and Environment. After five years as Senior Researcher at the Stockholm Environment Institute, he bcame the Professor of Sustainable Development at University of Surrey, and was the first person to hold that title at a UK university.

The video below starts in Dutch (only for 25 seconds), the interview itself is in English.
