FET #13: Degrowth, decoupling, and how to get good environmental outcomes
Are there environmental limits to economic growth? We dig deep into this question and learn how Cameron's views have radically change after a decade of seeking answers.
Is economic growth possible in a finite world?
It’s a big question. In this episode, we discuss whether economic growth must come with more resource use, whether that is good or bad, whether degrowth is possible, and practical ways that societies get good environmental outcomes.
Also, learn how Cameron has changed his views on this after a decade of research and why he now has an optimistic view about our environmental future.
