Two new links to resources have been posted on the webpage for our March workshop, Degrowth: A Critical Juncture?, on exploring new meanings for 'growth' and 'progress' and alternatives to the traditional economic model of constant growth:

    1. The Inclusive Wealth Report 2012 comprehensively assesses the true wealth of nations through by considering the value of diverse forms of capital assets: manufactured or produced capital, human capital, and natural capital.  This report is a joint initiative of the United Nations University International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Enivronmental Change (UNU-IHDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with the UN Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development (UNW-DPC) and the Natural Capital Project.

    2. Cambridge University Press has published an open access issue of articles that examine global economic systems and measurements of wealth through the lens of sustainability.
