Petition for a steady-state economy
3 years ago

Here is a petition for a steady-state economy, sponsored by CASSE, the Center for the Advancement of the Steady-State Economy:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/Fix-the-economy-stupid/

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.
