Norgaard, ERG Professor Emeritus: Higher Education for a Post-Growth World

Higher Education for a Post-Growth World – ERG professor emeritus Richard Norgaard is quoted in this Chronicle of Higher Education article. “The economy … really is the world’s greatest faith-based organization,” says Norgaard in a story about higher education being in a position to help the nation “move beyond the environmentally destructive imperative of ever-continuing economic growth.” Link

The piece was written by ERG alumnus Michael Maniates (MA ’83, PhD ’90), Professor of Social Sciences and Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College. He also authored the longer chapter in State of the World 2017 from which the essay in The Chronicle was drawn.
