Alessio Terzi: Growth for Good

In this episode we chat with Alessio Terzi about his book “Growth for Good: Reshaping Capitalism to Save Humanity from Climate Catastrophe”, published by Harvard University Press. Is economic growth wrecking the planet? Is economic growth the engine driving climate change, pollution, and the shrinking of natural spaces? To save the environment, will we have to shrink the economy? Might this even lead to a better society, especially in rich nations, helping us break free from a pointless obsession with material wealth that only benefits the few? Alessio Terzi takes these legitimate questions as a starting point for a riveting journey into the socioeconomic, evolutionary, and cultural origins of our need for growth. It’s an imperative, he argues, that we abandon at our own risk.
