mos“Reading Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth exposed me to a new, yet tremendously interesting, perception of Economic Growth: capitalism drives growth at the expense of the environment and creates an iron cage of consumerism rather than delivering prosperity. Schumacher’s Small is Beautiful enhanced my previous knowledge with the concept of Buddhist Economics, a fascinating if somewhat obscure approach which doesn’t feature at A Level. Maybe our quest for development has been unsuccessful so far because ‘The Elusive Quest for Growth’, as Easterly named it, is only a small part of a bigger picture.”- Bunyada Laoprapassorn
