It’s a largely unquestioned assumption that any and all economic growth is good. Many of the world’s developed countries, which already have a surplus of wealth and resources, continue to pursue economic growth as an end in itself. But could all this unchecked growth end up hurting the citizens of less-developed nations, making escape from poverty impossible? In The Economics of Arrival, Trebeck and Williams put forth a provocative idea: moving away from economic expansion toward economic inclusion. Using global examples, they argue for an economy that delivers quality rather than quantity—an economy for everyone.
Review Quotes
Tim DiMuzio, University of Wollongong
“A must read for anyone who cares about social justice, the future of the biosphere and our place in it. Trebeck and Williams challenge us to think about what we owe to future generations and raise serious questions about pursuing economic growth as an end goal. An important and timely book worthy of a broad audience and vibrant discussion.”
