Sunday 4 November 2018, 6pm Debate on ecological unsustainability and economic growth,
Speakers: Prof Molly Scott-Cato MEP (UK Green Party), Prof Giorgos Kallis (Barcelona), Prof Kevin Anderson (Manchester) and Prof Robert Pollin (Massachusetts). The event will be chaired by Maeve Cohen (Rethinking Economics).
organised by University of Manchester, Political Economy Research Centre.
What does the ecological crisis mean for capitalism? And what does capitalism mean for the ecological crisis? What kind of economic transformation is required to get us back within safe ecological and planetary boundaries? Does that imply economic growth, green growth or degrowth? What should we be pushing our political representatives and leaders to do? The University of Manchester hosts a debate on these questions and the political viability of a ‘post-growth’ economy.
