The Economics of Arrival : Ideas for a Grown-Up Economy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

What do we want from economic growth? What sort of a society are we aiming for? In everyday economics, there is no such thing as enough, or too much, growth.

Yet in the world's most developed countries, growth has already brought unrivalled prosperity: we have 'arrived'. More than that, through debt, inequality, climate change and fractured politics, the fruits of growth may rot before everyone has a chance to enjoy them.

It's high time to ask where progress is taking us, and are we nearly there yet?In fact, Trebeck and Williams claim in this ground-breaking book, the challenge is now to make ourselves at home with this wealth, to ensure, in the interests of equality, that everyone is included.

They explore the possibility of 'Arrival', urging us to move from enlarging the economy to improving it, and the benefits this would bring for all.
