The economic crash of 2008 revealed not only the frailty and vulnerability of the economic system, it also showed the false basis that the growth economy is built on – the financial bubble grows bigger and crashes bigger, but we don't seem to be getting any happier. To the contrary, we suffer from greater job insecurity and environmental chaos threatens.
The prescription from the mainstream economists is more growth – but is this just taking more of what ails us?
Has growth become uneconomic?
Is there another way?
