Rejecting the Illusion of Economic Growth: Can Lunarchy Work?

Speaker(s)
Description

Many economists argue that the concept of 'economic growth' has outlived its usefulness. One consequence of modern turbo-capitalism has been the escalating cost of time. Since 'time is money', time itself - time for enjoying life, for being with our children, for contemplating the stars - has become a scarce resource which no one can afford. When all humans were hunter gatherers, time was in abundant supply. Can we learn from extant hunter-gatherers how to re-set our clocks and reclaim time?
