Economic and political debate in Europe at present revolves around austerity v growth. It is becoming increasingly clear that austerity is failing as a policy, but is 'growth' a magic solution to all our problems? And will a return to pre-crisis growth levels not result in a return to increasing CO2 levels and environmentally damaging consumption?
Linked to this debate is the question as to what 'growth' means, and if growth is the answer, how do we encourage it in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible? These are some of the issues that will be touched on in the 3rd edition.
