Development Drums Episode 34: The Economics Of Enough


In this episode, Owen talks with author and economist Diane Coyle about her latest book ‘The Economics Of Enough, How To Run The Economy As If The Future Matters’.

Diane shares her thoughts on economic growth as a satisfactory goal for economic and social policy, and discusses the measure of Gross Domestic Product in relation to indicators of happiness and welfare. She also explains her ‘manifesto for enough’ in relation to how it addresses these issues, along with how much it leaves unresolved.

Development Drums is hosted by Owen Barder and produced by Anna Scott at the Center for Global Development in Europe.
