Conversations with Evolutionary Leaders
What can prosperity possibly mean in a world of environmental and social limits? This question has guided Tim Jackson’s research for over thirty years. Rejecting the simplistic idea that more is always better, and that economic growth is an infallible route to the “good life”, Tim has always been fascinated by a much broader vision of a shared and lasting prosperity, in which people have the potential to flourish as human beings, without increasingly damaging the finite planet we share with other species, and on which we depend for a home.

Books by Tim Jackson
Post-Growth – Life After Capitalism:
The relentless pursuit of more has delivered climate catastrophe, social inequality and financial instability – and left us ill prepared for life in a global pandemic. Weaving together philosophical reflection, economic insight and social vision, Tim Jackson’s passionate and provocative book dares us to imagine a world beyond capitalism – a place where relationship and meaning take precedence over profits and power. Post Growth is both a manifesto for system change and an invitation to rekindle a deeper conversation about the nature of the human condition.
Prosperity Without Growth:
What can prosperity possibly mean in a world of environmental and social limits? Tim Jackson’s piercing challenge to conventional economics openly questioned the most highly prized goal of politicians and economists alike: the continued pursuit of exponetial economic growth. Its findings provoked controversy, inspired debate and led to a new wave of research building on its arguments and conclusions. He shows how the economy of tomorrow may be transformed in ways that protect employment, facilitate social investment, reduce inequality and deliver both ecological and financial stability.
