Peter Victor

Click the above player to listen to an interview with Peter Victor, author of Managing without Growth: Slower by Design, Not by Disaster.

Peter Victor challenges the priority that rich countries continue to give to economic growth as an over-arching objective of economic policy. The challenge is based on a critical analysis of the literature on environmental and resource limits to growth, on the disconnect between higher incomes and happiness, and on the failure of economic growth to meet other key economic, social and environmental policy objectives.

Peter Victor is a professor in Environmental Studies at York University and was formerly the Assistant Deputy Minister of the Environmental Sciences and Standards Division in the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.
