‘Degrowth’, a type of ‘postgrowth’, is becoming a strong political, practical and cultural movement for downscaling and transforming societies beyond capitalist growth and non-capitalist productivism to achieve global sustainability and satisfy everyone’s basic needs. This groundbreaking collection on housing for degrowth addresses key challenges of unaffordable, unsustainable and anti-social housing today, including going beyond struggles for a 'right to the city' to a 'right to metabolism', advocating refurbishment versus demolition, and revealing controversies within the degrowth movement on urbanisation, decentralisation and open localism. International case studies show how housing for degrowth is based on sufficiency and conviviality, living a ‘one planet lifestyle’ with a common ecological footprint. This book explores environmental, cultural and economic housing and planning issues from interdisciplinary perspectives such as urbanism, ecological economics, environmental justice, housing studies and policy, planning studies and policy, sustainability studies, political ecology, social change and degrowth. It will appeal to students and scholars across a wide range of disciplines.

Degrowth is a rejection of the illusion of growth and a call to repoliticize the public debate colonized by the idiom of economism. It is a project advocating the democratically-led shrinking of production and consumption with the aim of achieving social justice and ecological sustainability. This overview of degrowth offers a comprehensive coverage of the main topics and major challenges of degrowth in a succinct, simple and accessible manner. In addition, it offers a set of keywords useful forintervening in current political debates and for bringing about concrete degrowth-inspired proposals at different levels - local, national and global. The result is the most comprehensive coverage of the topic of degrowth in English and serves as the definitive international reference.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich Ethik, Note: 1,0, Universität Mannheim (Philosophische Fakultät), Veranstaltung: Ökologische Utopien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Was bereits der ökologische Vordenker Ernest Callenbach in seinem utopischen Zukunftsroman Ökotopia – Notizen und Reportagen von William Weston aus dem Jahre 1999 literarisch verpackt hat, wird nun scheinbar dringlicher denn je: ein wirtschaftlicher Wandel, eine ökologische Wende, kurz: Degrowth. Seit der Finanz- und Weltwirtschaftskrise ab 2007 keimten Skeptizismus und kritischer Distanzierung gegenüber der wachstumsorientierten Ökonomie auf. Das Wachstumsdiktat schien seine gesetzesgleiche Allgemeingültigkeit und grenzenlose Berechtigung zunehmend einzubüßen. Dies zeigt sich nicht minder an der aktuellen globalen Entwicklung hinsichtlich exponentiellen Wirtschafts- und Bevölkerungswachstums, diverser Ressourcenknappheit bis hin zum Peak-Oil bzw. Peak-Everthing-Phänomen. Bezeichnend hierfür wurde der Earth-Overshoot-Day im Jahr 2018 auf den 01. August datiert mit der Tendenz, dass die Erd-Einheit von 1,7 für den globalen Ressourcenverbrauch durch stetig wachsende Nachfrage weiter zunimmt. Vor diesem Hintergrund erscheint das vom damaligen Bonner Parlament aufgrund der ersten deutschen Nachkriegsrezension 1967 gesetzlich festgeschriebene, wirtschaftspolitische Ziel eines „stetige[n] und angemessene[n] Wachstum[s]“ fast schon grotesk. Das weltweit verflochtene Wirtschaftsmodell hat immense Auswirkungen auf die Bereiche der Ökologie, Gesellschaft, Lebensqualität und befeuert zudem „[...] Trends mit weltweiter Wirkung: d[ie] beschleunigte Industrialisierung; d[as] rapide Bevölkerungswachstum; d[ie] weltweite Unterernährung; d[ie] Ausbeutung der Rohstoffreserven und d[ie] Zerstörung des Lebensraums.“ Vor allem aber die über die anthropozentrische Grenze hinausgehenden Themengebiete der Nachhaltigkeit, des Umweltschutzes sowie ein zunehmendes, generelles Interesse an der kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit exponentiellem Wirtschaftswachstum waren Anlass dieser Arbeit.

Nicolae Georgescu-Roegen (1906-1994) is considered today as perhaps the chief founder of the transdisciplinary field today known as Ecological Economics, but that he defined himself as Bioeconomics. In his later years Georgescu-Roegen intended to write a book of this title that would systematize what he considered to be the most significant results of his work. This project intends to resume this project, publishing a collection of the most relevant Georgescu-Roegen essays on Bioeconomics, including previously unpublished papers.

The modern-day world faces a hostile climate, depleted resources and the destruction of habitats. The dream that growth will lead to a materialistic utopia is left unfulfilled by a lack of ecological and economic capacity. The only choice is to find alternatives to increased growth, transform the structures and institutions currently shaping the world, change lifestyles and articulate a more credible vision for the future and lasting prosperity. As a reaction to the problems accrued by capitalism, new development approaches such as the concept of degrowth have evolved. Degrowth in Tourism explores newly-emerging development and philosophical approachesthat provide more equity for host communities and offer a low-carbon future by looking at alternatives to the classic models of development and applying the concept of degrowth in a tourism context. Proposing that we need to shift tourism research from models which prioritize commodified tourism experiences to those that offer alternative decommodified ones this book: Provides topical analysis and illustrates the key themes of degrowth; Discusses the relationship between tourism and degrowth from both a historic perspective and through contemporary patterns of activity; Includes international examples and case studies to translate theory into practical new approaches. A comprehensive review of the subject, this book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners within tourism, development, environment and economics, as well as those specifically studying degrowth.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - Macro-economics, general, grade: excellent, Berlin School of Economics and Law, language: English, abstract: This paper examines an alternative strategy for sustainability and economic development based on de-growth assumptions. This concept is proposed by ecological economists, who consider there to be a natural limitation on economic growth, imposed by necessary environmental regulation. Moreover they oppose the neoclassical ideas, which are considered as pro growth theories, arguing that economic growth itself does not contribute to the social and economic development, therefore it should not be sustained. Accepting this proposition the author makes an attempt to verify the feasibility of a de-growth strategy for macroeconomic stability, applying a post-Keynesian methodology for analysis. The Kaleckian model is used as the basic approach to derive the model restrictions for the de-growth strategy that maintains macroeconomic stability. The findings of this paper will provide policy recommendations to sustain macroeconomic stability, while taking full account of the degrowth assumptions.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 2,0, University of Bayreuth (Institut für Philosophie), course: Integration of philosophy and economics, language: English, abstract: “Every day, in every industrialized country of the world, journalists and politicians give out a conscious and unconscious message. It is that better economic performance means more happiness for a nation. This idea is rarely questioned. We feel we would be more cheery if our boss raised our pay, and assume that countries must be roughly the same. The results in this paper suggest that, in a developed nation, economic progress buys only a small amount of extra happiness.“ (Oswald 1997, p. 1827) Based on Oswald’s introductory statement, this paper is going further than refuting the assumption that a certain kind of utility is solely contingent on absolute earnings. With the interpretation of utility as happiness, it would mean for the aggregate economy as well as for the individual that income secures happiness with a rising tendency. Having started with Oswald, another economist with well-known findings has to be made mention of: Richard Easterlin, who constructed the hypothesis that from a certain threshold of developmental achievements on, economic growth is of minor significance to the overall life satisfaction of a nation. The so-called Easterlin paradox originally arose as data on richer citizens within a country displayed a higher level of subjective well-being and led to the assumption that “economic growth improve[s] the human lot” (Easterlin 1974). Nevertheless, a comparison amongst well-developed states and over time revealed that there’s little difference of each population with regard to happiness. Thus, it appears that not the absolute but relative wealth is of import to life satisfaction in crossindividual and cross-stratum comparisons. Even though it never gained as much attention as its foreshadowing counterpart by Easterlin, the phenomenon is also denoted as the “relative deprivation theory” (Oswald 1999, p. 360), pointing out the state of deprived happiness poorer individuals in a society suffer.
