A compelling case that economic growth is a force for good and a blueprint for enrolling it in the fight against climate change



Economic growth is currently wrecking the planet. To save the environment, will we have to shrink the economy? Might this even lead to a better society, especially in rich nations, helping us break free from a pointless obsession with material wealth that only benefits the few?

Alessio Terzi takes these legitimate questions as a starting point for a riveting journey into the socioeconomic, evolutionary, and cultural origins of our need for growth. It’s an imperative, he argues, that we abandon at our own risk.

This does not mean we have to choose between chaos and environmental destruction. Growth for Good presents a credible agenda to enrol capitalism in the fight against climate catastrophe. With the right policies and the help of engaged citizens, pioneering nations can set in motion a global decarbonization wave and in parallel create good jobs and a better, greener, healthier world.

Thought-provoking and important… I hope this book reaches the hands of economic advisors of key politicians and persuades them to embrace the future.
