Input-text of an oral Session by Brian Czech at the Second International Conference on Economic Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity in Barcelona on the topic “Beyond Sustainable Development: Sustainable Degrowth towards a Steady-State”

Introduction: This session is concerned with two primary questions: What is the relationship between economic degrowth and a steady state economy? What is the relationship between La Décroissance and steady state economics as movements in political economy? The degree to which these concepts and movements are aligned or conflicting should be the primary subject, along with the implications for individuals and groups involved in La Décroissance and steady state economics.
