A short FEASTA course with David Korowicz on how economic growth eats itself, the environment, and makes society poorer. Explores the idea and operation of the global economy in the context of the wider eco-system in which it is situated. The continuing desire for economic growth, by its nature, will require ever more inputs of materials and energy. At the same time, it generates more and more waste such as greenhouse gasses. Is such an economy sustainable? Does it make us more content? Indeed, what is an economy for? Will nature force a change? Are other forms of money creation possible?
