  •  Transition to a no-growth economy (3+ / 0-)

    Obviously this has incredibly huge barriers to social possibility.

    I see the critical first step as:

    Moving to non-GDP measures of wellness

    This is incredibly important regardless of whether an economy is growing or shrinking, but it becomes critical in a non-growth situation.  If it is possible to shift the focus to objective measures of wellness, then not only does it regenerate hope for continued "progress" (cit this diary) but hugely increases the chances of actually making useful changes going forward.

    We shall not participate in our own destruction.
