The World After GDP: Politics, Business and Society in the Post Growth Era


GDP is supposed to be the supreme measure of growth and progress worldwide. Yet the financial crisis, the depletion of non-renewable energy resources and climate change show that it is fundamentally flawed.

While the end of GDP may sound like a nightmare to staunch defenders of neoliberal globalization, Lorenzo Fioramonti argues that it offers the possibility of an historic transition to a more equitable, sustainable and happy society.

His inspiring book sets out the political and economic implications of this shift to a world that's overcome its obsession with growth of the gross domestic product (GDP).

Lorenzo Fioramonti is Professor of Political Economy at the University of Pretoria (South Africa) and director of the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation
