Book Launch
“Managing Without Growth: Slower by Design, Not Disaster”
by Peter Victor

In this 2009 POWI-sponsored Book Presentation, economist Peter Victor talked about his latest book, Managing Without Growth: Slower by Design, Not Disaster. In it, Victor challenges the priority that rich countries continue to give to economic growth as an over-arching objective of economic policy. The challenge is based on a critical analysis of the literature on environmental and resource limits to growth, on the disconnect between higher incomes and happiness, and on the failure of economic growth to meet other key economic, social and environmental policy objectives.
