Social consequences of zero economic growth
The social consequences of a zero-growth rate constitute a vast and complex subject. What I intend is to outline an analytical approach for consideration of the topic and follow this with some specific examples of the social consequences most likely to emanate from a condition of zero economic growth. I am not going to discuss how zero economic growth might be either brought about or retained;1 my focus here will be on the consequences.*
