Do we need economic growth for the climate? Interview of Degrowth Vienna member Max Hollweg with Der Standard.

In late April, Degrowth Vienna and Attac member Max Hollweg was interviewed by Der Standard, together with Rupert Sausgruber, Professor of Public Economics at WU (Vienna University of Economics & Business). The conversation confronted the green growth narrative to the degrowth one, touching amongst others on resources, on the feasibility of decarbonising economic growth, on the role of state regulations, on the fossil energy industry’s superprofits, on indicators to measure prosperity, and of course on strategy.
