Policymaking Beyond Growth
The scientific debate on sustainability is still controversial about the existence of "growth constraints" or "growth drivers". While many authors consider the fixation on economic and corporate growth to be a question of mentality, others assume that there is a structural growth constraint. They describe its cause with various explanatory approaches, the plausibility of which is disputed. The goals of the project are to provide a complete and detailed overview of the current state of the debate, to categorize and evaluate the causes, and to discuss ways forward at the level of economic order and policy.
