About

Degrowth is an idea that critiques the global capitalist system which pursues growth at all costs, causing human exploitation and environmental destruction. The degrowth movement of activists and researchers advocates for societies that prioritize social and ecological well-being instead of corporate profits, over-production and excess consumption. This requires radical redistribution, reduction in the material size of the global economy, and a shift in common values towards care, solidarity and autonomy. Degrowth means transforming societies to ensure environmental justice and a good life for all within planetary boundaries.

    Good recent articles (2022 and beyond) to read about the efficacy of transition

    I was wondering if someone could direct me to any books/novels/research about how an economic collapse would trigger a forced transition away from capitalism, even if its involuntary or receives pushback (think scholars such as Trainer and Garcia)

    Thanks!

    Re-branding suggestion

    Seeing how Degrowth or growth-questioning communicators like Nate Hagens call the growthist economy "The Mordor Economy", from now on whenever I introduce Degrowth to someone I'm going to call it The Hobbit Economy, because who doesn't like the Hobbit way of life? And it implies in a non-threating way something smaller, slower, laid back, as Degrowth is.
