About the Author

Peter A. Victor, Professor Emeritus, York University, Canada


'This book will appeal to both technical economists and to general readers. It advances a compelling case for the abandonment of growth as a policy objective for rich countries, while acknowledging that more growth is still essential in poorer ones.' -- Peter C. Grosvenor, Environmental Politics
'Written in a crisp, clear, concise style, almost totally free of jargon, deeply grounded in data, and superbly referenced, the book is a must-read for those who want to form their own informed opinion about this subject, with or without economic education.' -- Halina Szejnwald Brown, Local Environment
'If you want to get into the nuts and bolts of postgrowth economics, then Managing Without Growth is the book for you.' -- Jeremy Williams, The Earthbound Report
