There needs to be room, I think, for CASSE to recognise that qualitative improvement (eg in technology) can lead to higher value production (in $ terms), which may be referred to as ‘growth’, yet may not involve more throughput of materials, more energy use, nor more waste.

This is an essential re-direction of globalist strategy. Capitalism has been co-opted, or rather, mutated, into a metastatic cancer. This initiative for a Steady State management discussion, has long been on my radar. Thank you for kicking it off … now push it to the front of all policy debates and initiatives.

We need to intend & intensify our efforts to create highly resilient ways of living now, especially as we start to bump up against many of the planetary resource limits during the coming decades..

As long as we can be showing functioning, enlivening & viable alternate models for production & consumption in our lives, others can take those models & re-scale or retrofit them to be available to more people as the need arises.

Responsible living includes successful voluntary family planning. A delicate subject that should be addressed.

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.
