UWFB: Less Is More

Friday, 24 September 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Less Is More: MMT meets ecological economics

What could be more empowering than Modern Monetary Theory (MMT)? Try mixing MMT with ecological economics. Together, they give us the tools to turn the threat of ecological collapse into the "no brainer" choice between more well-being, or suicide. Combined, MMT and ecological economics equip us to deal with the "mega-problem" of which the climate crisis is only one part.

We speak with journalist and editor of Sustainability and the New Economics, Stephen Williams, about the ideas that could change your life.

Featuring Professor Philip Lawn.
