Frontiers of Commoning, with David Bollier

Tim Jackson & the Quest for Post Growth

Episode Summary

Ecological economist Tim Jackson has spent over three decades investigating what a post-growth economy might look like and how to pursue it. His 2009 book 'Prosperity without Growth' became a landmark exploration of this topic. Now, more than a decade later, Jackson’s thinking has evolved in some new and unexpected ways. His new book, 'Post Growth: Life After Capitalism', urges economics to expand its narrow, hyper-rational frameworks, and draw on insights from the worlds of art, culture, philosophy, storytelling, and the human quest for meaning.
