Winner of the 2022 Eric Zencey Prize in Ecological Economics Capitalism is broken. The relentless pursuit of more has delivered climate catastrophe, social inequality and financial instability and left us ill-prepared for life in a global pandemic. Tim Jacksons passionate and provocative book dares us to imagine a world beyond capitalism a place where relationship and meaning take precedence over profits and power. Post Growth is both a manifesto for system change and an invitation to rekindle a deeper conversation about the nature of the human condition. Now available as an audiobook narrated by the author.

A Reminder that judging political success and national prosperity by the entirely faulty measure of GDP is short-changing the present and the future. Natalie Bennett, The House Magazine fascinating The BMJ Opinion With great sensitivity and wonderful insight, Tim Jackson shows us that there is life after the growth imperative and its a richer, more humane form of life. With its blend of science, history and biographical detail, Post Growth was a delight to read and gave me much to think about. Svend Brinkmann Author of The Joy of Missing Out Through the window of our pandemic lockdown Jackson sees both the sins of capitalism and the renewal of hope. An instructive and stimulating read! Herman Daly Author of Steady State Economics Tim Jacksons compelling postgrowth vision strikes at the heart of todays greatest existential challenge and human predicament: either we continue to propagate a capitalistic growth paradigm that fosters inequality, climate and health crises or we build our lives and livelihoods around a holistic system providing what is truly meaningful. Sandrine Dixson-Declve Co-President, The Club of Rome Joyous Post Growth is one of the best written economic tomes I have read in a long while. Dollars and Sense Post Growth is perhaps the most imaginative book Ive read on the topic of economic growth, a lyrical and thoughtful account of where capitalism fails and the many ways that things could be done better. The Earthbound Project Written almost as much in poetry as in prose, it is offered as a string of vignettes and parables giving us insights into whats wrong with the way our economy works and what we can do to change it. Ecologist This book demonstrates that changing the current economic paradigm is not a crazy dream, but a real and absolutely essential possibility. For all of us. Right now. Taking the world towards the sustainable development we need is a revolution waiting to happen, if we only allow it. Enrico Giovannini Former Chief Statistician, OECD Tim Jackson appeals to humanity's incredible ingenuity by replacing the tunnel vision of mainstream economics with a tour d'horizon of how good lives for all are perfectly possible without costing the Earth. Maja Gpel, The New Institute Post Growth can be read as a playbook of how to turn the categorical imperative back on its feet again, how to build a world where equal rights to production and consumption do not ruin the planet, and how to subordinate the economy to a broader reflection on its purpose. Green European Journal Jackson writes beautifully Green House Abounds with prescriptions for the economy of tomorrow that challenge the orthodoxies of today intriguing. The Guardian Post growth is one of the most important ideas of the 21st century, and Tim Jackson one of its most powerful proponents. Dont miss this brilliant new book. Jason Hickel Author of Less is More An unapologetic, clear-eyed vision. Kerry Kennedy President of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights A thrilling intellectual journey towards a post growth world. Roman Krznaric Author of The Good Ancestor Some call Tim Jacksons thesis about capitalisms flaws, and proposed remedies, provocative. After two decades as a successful capitalist (or so they tell me) I dont find it provocative at all, rather an existential imperative. Jeremy Leggett Founder of Solarcentury and SolarAid Utterly inspiring an urgent and eloquent plea for radical change. Caroline Lucas MP, Green Party A tour de force, sinuous, disruptive and a masterpiece of measured rage and love. Jonathon Porritt Author of Hope in Hell Extraordinary, powerful and beautifully written difficult to put down. Mamphela Ramphele Co-President, The Club of Rome Eco
