From the conference programme: Degrowth proponents have been noticeably silent on how to react to the Eurocrisis, a situation of actually-existing economic shrinkage. This is a problem in several ways: first, it is still unclear how to deal with this wrong kind of degrowth. Second, given that “one should never let a good crisis go to waste”, how to respond to this moment of potential transformation? On this panel we discuss what policies degrowth proponents should demand in the light of the current economic crisis.
