spiked-essays | Who's afraid of economic growth?

Here is a wonderful essay by Daniel Ben-Ami on growth and the pervasiveness of "growth scepticism" that underscores so much of contemporary politics and especially ideological environmentalism.

In many ways Daniel's discussion underscores how pernicious the influence of moralists such as Galbriath has been on public policy and helps us to understand how and why ecomyths persist despite clear empirical science to the contrary.
