Talk by David Korowicz: The Twilight of the Age of Growth
The experience of economic growth has shaped our dependencies, expectations, world-views and mythology. Profound stress in our financial system and ecological constraints mean this age of growth is coming to its end. Radical change and uncertainty will be forced upon us, while the complexity of our dependencies have made us vulnerable. Our collective challenge is how we wisely and creatively adapt, turning real hardship into positive transformation. 1 hour 15 minutes, plus discussion
