‘Towards a wellbeing economy that serves people and nature’ highlights empirically how the European Union’s addiction to economic growth is failing, even on its own terms. Not only is this model only delivering prosperity to the very few at the top of the economic pyramid, it is also trashing the environment and fuelling global warming.
The report, which was produced by the EEB and Oxfam Germany in the context of the Climate of Change project, provides a blueprint for the transition to a wellbeing economy which is built on three main pillars which can be referred to as the three Ds: the dismantling of exploitative structures, democratising economic governance and degrowing the economy.
This is a four-page summary of the main finding of the report.
