We will not destroy this planet our Sun ( amongst other Galactic pandemic catastrophes) will do that. We will only make it more difficult to survive on our planet unless we change. And change we must!

CASSE should encourage the UN to investigate at what maximum population level each national state can provide adequate food, water and renewable resources to its population without significant imports or exports. The numbers should be shocking enough to convince many of the necessity of non-growth, steady state economies. In addition, it would show how many generations of Negative Population Growth we need in order to establish a balance between humans and the Eco-system.

I totally support these goals but we cannot underestimate how hard this will be – how will steady state (zero growth) provide pensions for the elderly – pensions have been predicated on growth?

Talk to your local post-secondary educational institutions about offering studies in alternative economics, the time is now ripe. Other possible models are Participatory Economics and Ethical Socialism – yes I know I said the “S” word! The minimum opportunity a democracy should offer its citizens is to think freely.

Great to see this – I’ve been arguing for ages that we need a new economic model that doesn’t rely upon an ever increasing population.

Particularly resonate with the below point;

2) Economic growth occurs when there is an increase in the multiplied product of population and per capita consumption,

Agreed. Can’t have a conversation about unsustainable economic growth without having a conversation about usustainable population growth!

What I’m missing from what I’ve ready about a steady state economy so far is just HOW this transition could take place without violent opposition from the reactionary forces that CONTROL the world’s economy.
I can see small local efforts being “tolerated” as long as they don’t pose a threat to larger power structures, but not much more beyond that in lieu of a complete breakdown of the economy which will pose a whole host of other existential problems.
I nevertheless support attempts to pierce the veil of the “ponzi scheme” economy into which we have all been indoctrinated.
