Enough is Enough

Hot off the press from the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy, 'Enough is Enough', the report that evolved from the proceedings of the Steady State Conference held in Leeds in June 2010.

Keep in touch with Steady State news from CASSE via Facebook, and also the South Australian chapter.

'Do you suspect that the idea of perpetual economic growth on a finite planet is folly?

Are you searching for ways to solve our profound social and environmental problems?

Do you want to know how we can construct an economy that (1) meets our needs without undermining the life-support systems of the planet and (2) achieves sustainable and equitable well-being for all people?

Enough is Enough is the single most complete collection of policy initiatives, tools, and reforms for an economy that makes enough its goal instead of more.

The report, generated from the inspirational ideas of the Steady State Economy Conference, consists of three parts:

Part One describes why economic growth is becoming an obsolete goal and provides a crystal-clear description of the desirable alternative — a steady state economy

Part Two examines ten key areas where change is needed to achieve a steady state economy

Part Three provides a blueprint for moving boldly from ideas to action.

Please read the report, discuss the ideas contained in it, and do what you can to help get us on the path to a better economy. If you are interested in engaging with others in online discussions of report topics, then please visit the SteadyStaters Google Group and request an invitation to join.'
