It was a pleasure to contribute to the live-cast at Pakhuis de Zwijger on degrowth with Egbert Dommerholt, Arne Hendriks, Melanie Rieback and Cecile van Oppen. There was so much more I would have liked to add, e.g., about the difference between degrowth economics and the circular economy, about the systemic challenges of (neoliberal) capitalism working against ‘post-growth entrepreneurship’, about degrowth practices beyond the private sector, or about the Marxist, Feminist and Anarchist traditions in degrowth. But time was up! I hope this session provided a bit of a glimpse into a rich, broad and promising movement.
- There is no elephant in the room
- No inclusive development without a post-growth economy
