Governing degrowth
Politics of the anthropocene III

Can degrowth become a realistic alternative political model ?

In light of the risk of collapse that weighs on industrial societies today, this volume defends new paths based on temperance and deceleration: establishing an environmental transition revenue, basing money creation on the limits of the planet, fair rationing of fossil fuels, the development of permaculture, work-sharing et cetera. It presents certain experiments in this area, such as the Cascadia bioregion in Northern California.

Governing growth rather than submitting to it : a new political history can be written, one in which the perspectives available are not only those of crisis but also those of creativity.

This book paves the way for discussion on alternative ways of living on earth, as improbable as they may seem, and in so doing, demonstrates that the future is not merely the linear prolongation of the present.
