Book launch: Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet.

Date: Thu 30 Apr, 6:45pm

Thursday, April 30 The notion of ever-expanding economic growth has been promoted so relentlessly that the public is now convinced that 'growth' is the natural solution to virtually all social problems — poverty, debt, unemployment, and even the environmental degradation caused by growth in the first place. Warnings from scientists that we live on a finite planet have been ignored or even scorned as bogus predictions of doom and systematically resisted by economists and the corporate sector. Author Kerryn Higgs will discuss these and other themes and their importance for left politics in the 21st century. 6:45pm. New International Bookshop, 54 Victoria St, Carlton South.
