The end of our high-growth world was underway well before Covid-19 arrived. According to Danny Dorling fertility rates, growth in GDP per person, and even technological progress have all steadily declined since the 1970's. Rather than lament this turn of events, Dorling says we should embrace it as a moment of promise and a move toward stability. Dorling was interviewed by economist and broadcaster Linda Yueh, you can find out more about his new book Slowdown here: https://bit.ly/3foP5M2
