A reminder that I will be debating Tim Jackson , the professor of sustainable development at the University of Surrey, tomorrow week on Prosperity without growth? at the Battle of Ideas festival weekend in London.
To get a quick idea of Jackson’s arguments they are summarised in his Ted lecture available to watch above. A lengthier video, first broadcast on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, is available here .
Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth is the closest I have come across to the direct opposite of Ferraris for All. There is no doubt that it is a lucid and sophisticated book. It was first published as a report from the Sustainable Development Commission – giving it at least a semi-official status.
When I first came across Jackson in person, at a public meeting at the RSA in London, he described me as “absolutely bonkers” (see 27 March 2010 post).
