Description - The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a Grown-Up Economy by Katherine Trebeck

What do people and planet really need from the economy? Is quality of life undermined by the drive for economic growth at all costs?

While everyday economics assumes all growth is good, the richest countries already have plenty of wealth and resources - they have 'arrived'.

But in pushing for more, wealthy countries could undermine these achievements and make it impossible for people elsewhere to escape poverty.

In this provocative book, Trebeck and Williams describe a new challenge: a move from expansion to inclusion. Using global examples, they argue for an economy that delivers quality rather than quantity: an economy for everyone.

'In this provocative book, Trebeck and Williams describe a new challenge: a move from expansion to inclusion. Using global examples, they argue for an economy that delivers quality rather than quantity: an economy for everyone. This is a must read for anyone who cares about social justice, the future of the biosphere and our place in it. Trebeck and Williams challenges us to think about what we owe to future generations and raise serious questions about pursuing economic growth as an end goal. An important and timely book worthy of a broad audience and vibrant discussion.' - Tim DiMuzio, University of Wollongong, ACF Habitat Magazine
