In conversation with Chief Economist Hans Stegeman, Parrique addresses popular misconceptions about degrowth and post-growth by explaining how it works. They also discuss the role of the financial sector in a post-capitalist economy. “What we have done so far, has not worked, not a bit. We are still investing more in the stuff we should divest from. We need to be bolder, be prepared to take more risk, and reconsider the financing model, as a financial sector.”
Hans and Timothée discuss:
- What degrowth is and what it is not
- How to develop into a degrowth society
- What the role of finance is in a degrowth society
- How to set a degrowth transition in motion
