The Architectural League of New York is hosting a lecture by British Ecological Economist Tim Jackson in New York on April 24.
Tim Jackson will speak about the shifting paths for achieving prosperity in our lives and discuss the changing relationship between economic growth and prosperity stemming from his book, Prosperity without Growth. While economic growth was once essential in reaching our current level of development, perhaps continued growth not only sees diminishing returns, but also detracts from our present happiness and future prosperity. In a world with finite ecological limits, how do we make what we need, get it to the people who need it, and nurture what we already have? A conversation with New York Times journalist Eduardo Porter will follow Jackson’s talk.
