Considering Another Way Out Of Economic Upheaval


The economy is taking a major thrashing from the efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19.  Donnie Maclurcan has proposed giving it a thrashing for a long time now. 

Maclurcan advocates a steady-state economy, one that does not require constant increases in consumption, through his work leading the Ashland-based Post Growth Institute

PGI's annual events include Free Money Day, where institute staff hand out money.  Congress is considering something like it to stimulate the economy now.  Donnie Maclurcan visits with perspective. 

Here's a link to his recent article on dealing with each other in times of crisis.
