Towards a postgrowth economics: A viable postgrowth economy without increasing inequality

Project description

Viable post-growth economy with restrained inequality

The slowing of growth that is predicted by economists represents a major concern for EU policies with respect to development, environment and poverty. Since no industrial economy has experienced a long period of slow or negative growth, the management of a post-growth economy is uncertain. Which policies can prevent the rise of inequalities and poverty in slowing growth circumstances? The EU-funded PostGro project will combine existing theoretical research on post-growth viability with research into actions to impede the rise of inequality. The project will identify the parameters that make a viable post-growth economy and guard against further spread of inequality. It will also cross-check these parameters against historical case studies and evaluate policies for a viable and restrained inequality post-growth economy.
