This week, Tim Jackson joins the podcast to discuss his new book, Post Growth: Life after Capitalism. He discusses how we reshape our economy to be in better balance with our natural world, prioritize our well-being, and truly value the aspects of our society that create real prosperity - and how we got so far off-track. Tim Jackson is the Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity and Professor of Sustainable Development at the University of Surrey in the UK. His previous book, Prosperity without Growth, was a Financial Times book of the year and UnHerd’s book of the decade!
