Sea of Faith, Yorkshire


Meeting in Huddersfield 5th June 2010

Peter Wrigley provided this synopsis:

The Steady State Economy

All political parties, with the possible exception of the Greens, seem to regard continued economic growth as a high priority, and most commentators seem to regard the achievement of continued economic growth as a measure of a government's success.

However, whether or not continued growth is sustainable or even desirable is being increasingly questioned by some economists and other academics. Peter Wrigley, a retired teacher of economics, will put and examine critically the case for prosperity without growth.
