[ Charles Eisenstein // Living Without Economic Growth ] from Extraenvironmentalist on Vimeo.

In this video Charles Eisenstein is thinking out loud what might mentally happen to people when the economy doesn’t grow any longer.

Extraenvironmentalist about the video: Charles Eisenstein talks about lower rates of economic growth across the planet. As economic growth stalled in 2012, will 2013 be the year we learn to live without economic growth? In this video Charles covers his observations from travelling around austerity stricken Europe and the need to detach our notion of progress from material acquisition. We’ll be releasing a second video with Charles in 2013 where he talks about the systemic change needed in the global money system and debt forgiveness.
