The Steady State Economy Conference: Working Towards an Alternative to Economic Growth - 19th June 2010 Leeds
The conference is being organised by Economic Justice for All (EJfA) and the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy (CASSE)
The organisers think this is the first UK National Conference to explore and develop the idea of a "steady state economy", and the policies to achieve this.
