Tim Jackson: Prosperity Without Growth

By Joshua Nelson

Tim Jackson is a rock-star. At least in the post growth community, in my opinion. He has helped to further an intelligent, deliberate conversation about what we need as people on this planet: a healthy, sustainable, people and planet friendly economy. His book, Prosperity Without Growth, is by far one of the best reads on the subject of a post-growth society.

Here is a great lecture he gave on the topic:

I was lucky enough to meet Tim at the New Green Economy conference in January. Not only is he well spoken and well-written, but he’s an overall nice guy. Spread the word: we can have a prosperous, sustainable economy without economic growth!
