World After GDP : Economics, Politics and International Relations in the Post-Growth Era (Paperback)
about this item
GDP is supposed to be the supreme measure of growth and progress worldwide. Yet the financial crisis, the depletion of non-renewable energy resources and climate change show that it is fundamentally flawed.
While the end of GDP may sound like a nightmare to staunch defenders of neoliberal globalization, Lorenzo Fioramonti argues that it offers the possibility of an historic transition to a more equitable, sustainable and happy society.
His inspiring book sets out the political and economic implications of this shift to a world that?s overcome its obsession with growth of the gross domestic product (GDP).
