Here is a petition for a steady-state economy, sponsored by CASSE, the Center for the Advancement of the Steady-State Economy:
The sponsor states that "In a steady state, the goal is to optimize the size of the economy, not maximize it. That's the key to digging out of the environmental and economic hole we have dug for ourselves, and it's the key to building a desirable and hopeful society for future generations."
I do not like the title of the petition. However, I would like to see economies in a healthy steady-state kind of pattern that allows nature to flourish.
Monica, thank you for sharing the petition above. Seems like SSE would be the ONLY way to have a future!! )
Here is another link related to the topic. Hope the group finds it useful.
Many thanks Lyne! And I hope you have a very nice birthday.
Thank you for your wishes, Monica! I will try to celebrate even as I scramble to get everything done by the end of the semester!!! Argh!
Yay!! I am happy CASSE got the award and hope it gives the organization more visibility. Thanks for sharing the news!
Thanks Lyne, it is good and I am glad that they have been recognised in this way.
