New economy

Two planks – and a bridge – to the new economy

The ‘New Economy’ discussed here is not a proposition for radical discontinuity, and still less an artefact of wishful thinking. Whatever the urgency of a transition to an economy that interacts healthily with the biosphere, no proposition for this transition can succeed that does not present as a beneficial ‘adjacent possible’ for some significant fraction of the billions of pragmatic economic choices that are made each day by people with perfectly reasonable desires for security, dignity, and agency.
