Development Instead Of Expansion
The current economic model focuses on “growth”, ie the constant expansion of GDP, a condition I have termed Permagrowth. Since 1960 global GDP has expanded from $1.37 trillion to almost $90 trillion today.
The cost to our habitat is catastrophic, with CO2 emissions exploding.
The only solution is to quickly transition to a radically different economic model that will focus on Development instead.
