Message from Crux - Steady State

For those of you who don't already know, I am volunteering with a nonprofit organisation called CASSE (the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy).

I support CASSE's work so that we can build a sustainable and fair economy, and pursue a hopeful future for civilization. I think you might be interested in seeing what I'm doing with them!

First, CASSE is about to launch a new blog called The Daly News.

Each week, The Daly News will provide a thought-provoking feature essay that challenges the predominant economic paradigm and explores creative solutions to our profound economic and environmental problems. Herman Daly, the award-winning economist and incisive writer who developed the concept of the steady state economy, will kick it off on March 1.

In addition to Professor Daly, the core rotation of authors at The Daly News includes Brian Czech (wildlife biologist, ecological economist, and author of Shoveling Fuel for a Runaway Train), Brent Blackwelder (former president of Friends of the Earth and founder of American Rivers), and Rob Dietz (environmental scientist and executive director of CASSE).

You can access the blog on CASSE’s website or via RSS feed:

Second, CASSE has an entertaining animated short called Add It Up that tells the truth about pursuing perpetual economic growth.

The animation, produced by film students at the University of Southern California, is available on CASSE’s website and YouTube:


Third, the new version of steadystate.org is here!

CASSE has an improved website with up-to-date material, revamped graphics, and user-friendly navigation.

For more information about these resources and other news about the steady state economy, please read the most recent edition of The Steady Stater newsletter:

And remember: a steady state approach is the crux of sustainability!
