De-growth using a Job Guarantee

De-growth, de-carbonise, well-being, inclusion, a healthy environment. Yes, we can have an economy that is sustainable, and that includes everyone -- via full employment.

MMT-informed ecological economist, Professor Phil Lawn explains how this is possible. We can harness the many wonders of the Job Guarantee (which featured recently in a Boyer lecture given by Indigenous lawyer and activist, Noel Pearson.) We can include everyone in the economy, but we wont be using a "Universal Basic Income". And watch out Gina, Kev the Commie is coming after your wealth!
