Growth : a history and a reckoning / Daniel Susskind.

Susskind, Daniel, (author.).

Summary:

"Daniel Susskind traces the rich, surprisingly brief history of economic growth and responds to its ills. We cannot focus only on growth's upsides, but nor is degrowth a viable policy: the benefits of prosperity are too great to discard. Instead we must face hard tradeoffs, demoting growth from our top priority and reckoning with its moral challenges"-- Provided by publisher.
