'Lucid, calm and compelling – Olivier De Schutter tackles the big questions' Kate Pickett, co-author, The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone



How do we combat poverty and rising inequality? In our age of impending climate catastrophe, the conventional wisdom around economic growth is no longer fit for purpose; a rising tide sinks all boats.



Oliver De Schutter believes that we must fundamentally rethink the fight against poverty. The quest for growth not only clashes with the need to remain within planetary boundaries, but also creates the very social exclusion it is intended to cure: eroding human rights, widening inequality, and modernising poverty without eliminating it.



The Poverty of Growth is a clarion call to forge a new path demanding progress that is no longer focused on wealth and profit.
