Six steps to the Great Transition

on June 8, 2012

Brief summary of Andrew Simms plenary remarks – director of the New Economics Foundation from the UK.

Six steps to the Great Transition

1. Measuring well-being differently than just GDP.
2. Must reform finance, including both community and national finance.
3. Living within ecological means. Examples include fishery management and carbon budgets. We must get the environment back on the political agenda.
4. Reduce inequality.
5. Create good jobs, working with business people, unions, etc to build industrial policy that leads to good jobs.
6. Recreate the “good state” because the right economy needs a good state, individuals, and businesses working together.

We need to be dreamers who can make our dreams come true.
