Pluralistic Lecture Series: Social Limits to Growth (Lecture 8)

In case you couldn’t make it to the start of our lecture series’ new chapter “Economics for Future”, don’t worry: you can rewatch Dave Absons’ presentation of Ecological Limits to Growth on the YouTube-Channel “Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik”! 🌈

Next Thursday, we will discuss Social Limits to Growth with Laura Porak, scientific officer at Insitute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy (ICAE). 🌍

As some of you know, many economists refer to economic growth as a cake that is supposed to grow for the benefit of all. (Almost) everyone likes cake, and the more the better is the rule at many birthday parties. 🎂

But what are actually the real benefits and downsides of economic growth? And how to measure it? 📈

Bring your cake and enjoy!
