Sustainable Growth or Right Livelihood?

The Faraday Institute for Science and Spirituality of the University of Cambridge organized an international conference entitled "Sustainability in Crisis" in September 26-28, 2011 in Cambridge. Laszlo Zsolnai has been invited to present a view of Buddhist economics on sustainability. In his presentation "Sustainable Growth or Right Livelihood" he argued that not sustainable growth but sustainable livelihood should be the main goal for economic policies. Sustainable livelihood implies the de-growth of the material side of the economy.Zsolnai Buddhist economics.pdf
