Post-growth Localisation – a pamphlet by Rupert Read and Helena Norberg-Hodge

“Is ever more economic activity a good thing at all, in a world where what is scarce is nature, and time, and peace and quiet?”

Rupert Read

“The most effective way to alleviate a whole range of seemingly disparate symptoms — from deforestation to pollution, from poverty to ethnic conflict — is to change the dominant economy. Most important of all, countering the pressures that separate us from one another and the natural world would resonate with our deeper human needs. At the most fundamental level, localisation is the economics of happiness.”

Helena Norberg-Hodge
