Fifty Years Later

About economy that fits the Earth

keynote + conversation

This year, the sixth of the nine so-called planetary limits has been crossed. Fifty years ago, a team of scientists led by Dennis and Donella H. Meadows warned of the false conception of infinite growth on a finite planet in their publication Limits to Growth, or the "Club of Rome Report." In their study, using computer modeling of the behavior of human societies and economies, they predicted the depletion of key resources and the limits of human exploitation of nature. Have their predictions come true? What has changed in society and the economy since then? How do we understand limits as such and how do we perceive life within them?
