The Degrowth Movement has been around since the financial collapse in 2008 (something that happens on a regularly). If something is out of balance, it oscillates, and if the wrong measure are taken to correct it, it just gets worse, till it finally breaks. This is what our economic and financial system is, badly out of balance and it is driving climate change, inequality and poverty.
In the UK we had the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC) which Labour set-up, but basically ignored! The Conservatives, stopped funding it, and the English Green Party, also ignored a report published by the SDC; ‘Recession must make us question relentless pursuit of growth‘!
