News of the World #06 - June 2009

" Degrowth (in French: décroissance, in Italian: decrescita) is a political and economic ideology advocating a gradual decrease in economic output. Degrowth supporters believe that downscaling production is the only solution to the environmental issues currently faced by mankind.
Proponents of degrowth argue that current economic growth is not sustainable over the long term because it depletes natural resources and destroys the environment, and because it fails to help populations improve their welfare significantly."
