Here are two lists for the post-growth, steady state economy. The first list is for those of you who haven’t done much reading or are new to the topics. I would suggest reading them for an introduction into steady state concepts and then move on to the more in-depth list. The second list is what I consider (so far) to be the top books/articles — the “must haves” on your post growth reading list and is an expanded companion to the introduction list.
If you only read 5, 10, or 16 books/articles about sustainable economics and post-growth thought these are my suggestions:
Introduction to Post Growth, Steady State Economics
Further Post Growth Reading
There you have it. There are many other books/ articles/ blogs out there and I would definitely recommend you read as much as you can on anything that interests you. My problem usually lies in having more books to read than I have time to devote to them. I’m sure there are worse up-hill battles to be in, though.
