Many conferences and debates on debt or degrowth have taken place, but without sufficient commu...

Currently, most of the calls for work time reduction in a degrowth context focus on the global North and disregard the global South. I argue that advocating for work time reduction as a shared interest between North and South socio-environmental movements could ...

Policies for Equality Under Low or No Growth: A Model Inspired by Piketty

By: Giorgos Kallis, Jeroen van den Bergh, Tilman Hartley

GDP growth is declining in industrial economies, and there is increasing evidence that growth may be environmentally unsustainable. If growth falls below returns to wealth then inequalities increase, as Thomas Piketty recently showed. This poses a challenge to managing slow and/or negative growth. Here, we examine policies that have been proposed to solve the problem of increasing income inequa...

Faire l'économie de la haine. Essais sur la censure

By: Alain Deneault

Point de haine de l’économie là où on nous fait aimer l’argent, à tout prix. Point de haine de l’économie, mais une économie de la haine. Le programme: faire l’économie de la haine. Haïr sans qu’il n’y paraisse. Ainsi s’investit-on dans l’asservissement à l’argent. Sous les données, sous les calculs et sous la spéculation : des crimes, du sang, du vol et des morts, mais assourdis par ce savoir ...

By: Tim Eismon-Key

Der Verlag: Kein Kind würde auf die Idee des heutigen Geldsystems kommen.

Gemessen daran ist faires Geld kinderleicht. Die meisten Publikationen und Diskussionen zum Thema ...

To save humanity and the planet, we must redesign money

By: Alf Hornborg

From the text: The solution requires us to recognise that the operation of markets and money is socially constructed. The rules of the game can be rewritten. To acknowledge the extent to which the destiny of human society and the biosphere has been delegated to the mindless logic of objects like money and technology is like snapping out of a delusion.

Degrowth Conference Budapest, 2016 - Non-Monetary Degrowth is Strategically Significant

By: Anitra Nelson

Presentation by Anitra Nelson Even for many radical adherents of degrowth, money is a common-sense — not simply capitalist — tool, so alternative currencies and banks abound. This paper argues against this common-sense logic, as follows. The most direct and efficient form of degrowth requires as-local-as-is-feasible production focusing on people’s basic needs, implying that future distribution...
