Prosperity and

Sustainability in the Green Economy

Tim Jackson speaks at The Architectural League of New York, 24 April 2014



As part of the consideration of Economics & Investment within the 5KL initiative - an initiative dedicated to new ways of thinking, talking, and acting on architecture, climate change, and the economic future - Tim Jackson speaks about the shifting paths for achieving prosperity in our lives. While economic growth was once essential in reaching our current level of development, continued growth not only sees diminishing returns, but also detracts from our present happiness and future prosperity. In a world with finite ecological resources, how do we make what we need, get it to the people who need it, and nurture what we already have?




A conversation with New York Times journalist - and author of The price of everything: solving the mystery of why we pay what we do - Eduardo Porter follows Jackson’s talk.
