Imagining A Post-Growth World

The general impression, at least in American society, is that the economy is doing poorly if it is not growing. 

But a single planet with finite resources presents some obvious limits to growth. 

Defenders of slow or no growth say it's better for the planet if we don't think in terms of constant expansion. 

Donnie Maclurcan, teacher and executive director of the Post Growth Institute, works to get that point of view across. 

He joins us to explain the thinking, and how it could be carried out.
