This July 2010 paper for a debate in Attac Germany about degrowth is now available in English

1.) Our goal: Social rights – global and concrete
2.) Nature is limited and resistant
3.) Decoupling is not possible
4.) „Leur récession n’est pas notre décroissance!“
5.) …and your austerity is not our degrowth!
6.) There is no good growth, only a good life!
7.) Goodbye, Keynes – good morning Keynes and beyond…
8.) Reduce production, shorten working hours, redistribute wealth, regulate investment 9.) Beyond capitalism
10.) Buen vivir beyond tradition and modernity
11.) Trans-communalism instead of post-democracy
