[ Josh Farley // Rethinking Economic Growth ] from Extraenvironmentalist on Vimeo.

Interview with Josh Farley made during the International Conference on Degrowth in the Americas in Montreal 2012.

Josh Farley explains what money is, respectively where it comes from, as well as how debt works. He further says what degrowth means for him: a downscaling of the economy so it fits with the earth ecosystem. Another topic of the interview are real costs of e.g. coal power plants. As a solution to the current multidimensional crises he talks about cooperation and commons as well as measures which are cost saving, fossil fuel saving, decreasing the GDP, while provoking an increase in well-being.
