The Future We Want and the One We Can't Afford

issue cover 287 Buy this issue Join Resurgence Free e-cards

In our November/December issue we ask "what kind of future do we want and how do we get there?"

What if we focused on the economics of peace - economics as if people and planet mattered - rather than the economics of profit? In his article, Steady-state Economics, Herman Daly outlines a new approach to economics that will create an economy that is environmentally and socially sustainable. We also present the views of students calling for a radical shake-up in the way economics is taught in universities across the globe.

Plus: Herbert Girardet re-evaluates the role of cities; Paul Kingsnorth challenges the fundamental principles of the Neo-greens; and George Monbiot explains why campaigning with hope is more productive than emphasising threats.

As well as economics, local democracy and the impact of technology on our daily lives, the November/December issue includes articles on a pilgrims path; protecting our countryside; the art of rebellion; healing through Nature and much more.
