Via Scoop.itThe Great Transition
“Décroissance is a kind of environmentalism, but it is more than that. An important intellectual underpinning of the movement is the idea that gross domestic product is a deficient yardstick for economic performance and growth. It doesn’t measure the degradation of the environment as lost wealth, nor distinguish between productive economic activity and pointless (or destructive) make-work. And we now know that the huge role of debt in a growth-obsessed economy makes any measurement of its size untrustworthy.” Great to see an article on the French degrowth movement in the Orange Stronghold of Capitalism.
