The Steady State Economy

I recently heard John Key speak to a gathering of Chamber of Commerce people plus other Dunedin employers (education sector). He was giving us a very positive message about the health of the economy and how it was  beginning to grow again. Economic growth was going to be our future and our saviour. More jobs would flow from drilling oil and gas just off our coast. No mention of the greenhouse gas emissions this would ultimately lead to of course.

Here is an article about an alternative to “Growth” which is worth reading: The Benefits of Steady State Economy
