Abstract: The first contribution to the special session on the legacy of Richard Douthwaite is an attempt to carve out his most important heoretical findings to show to what extent the work of Richard Douthwaite can be seen as a convincing foundation to a degrowth strategy, and how this foundation can be used to develop practical suggestions towards its political realization. The contribution will deal with the critique of economic growth, with Richard’s the studies on the architecture of a local economy, and with his ideas on the foundation of new monetary systems.

This media entry was a contribution to the special session “Beyond globalization – the legacy of Richard Douthwaite” at the 4th International Degrowth Conference in Leipzig in 2014.
