Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


In this article, LSE ID alum Tobias Wuttke argues that a fundamental debate in development studies must be about reconciling catch-up industrialisation with the insights of de-growth and ecological economics. Wuttke builds on his argument from a previous article where he questions the viability of de-growth as a concept in light of the climate crisis.
