Schumacher Institute Autumn Conference
Alternatives to Austerity? Schumacher’s Economics in the Great Recession
21st November 2013, 9am – 5pm
What is the connection between debt, growth and the price of oil and other commodities?
Are we subsidising the next recession by focusing on a return to growth?

Join us at this one-day conference to explore whether we can update E.F. Schumacher’s economic philosophy to respond to our current economic crisis. How can we create an economic system where people and the planet matter?

Some of the leading economic and environmental thinkers will convene in Bristol to explore austerity, debt, growth and human development in 2013 – particularly in light of environmental and resource stress. And since we are ‘all in this together’, we want to hear your thoughts on these complex and challenging issues!

Speakers include: Richard Heinberg, Post Carbon Institute, Molly Scott Cato, University of Roehampton and David Fell, Brook Lyndhurst.

“Economics, and even more so applied economics, is not an exact science; it is in fact, or ought to be, something much greater: a branch of wisdom.” E.F. Schumacher
