The Viable Economy – crowdsourcing the second edition (Part 3)

18th June (7-8.30 pm)  Booking is essential via this Eventbrite link.

The Viable Economy is our conceptual framework for the post growth society and economy in Greater Manchester. It was published in November 2014 and has been reprinted twice. Nearly 5 years later we should really review and revise it. Does the analysis still hold? What did we get right and what was wrong? What did we miss out?

This is our third interactive session (this time covering the sections on ‘growth’, ‘democracy and ownership’ and ‘distribution and equality’) and participants are expected to have read the material. On registering we’ll send you the short list of questions we’ll be using to structure our discussion. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t attend the earlier sessions.

The Viable Economy is available HERE or you can get a printed copy for £2 incl postage from the address on this page.

Booking is essential via this Eventbrite link.
