Two years ago I started blogging on a small blogger account, ranting about the economy and ecological limits. Since that time I’ve seen this blog blossom until a larger medium for discussion and broadcasting. I’ve really enjoyed the connections made, the on-going research and opening this topic up to others. You, my readers, have been a constant inspiration for me – the comments, emails, and feedback are always great! I am looking forward to the next two years, especially in light of the coming challenges (and opportunities) our world faces.
There are a few of us post-growth bloggers and activists that are working on a project. It isn’t out yet, so I can’t say much about it just yet. Between my work with that, having a wife in college and having a toddler who refuses to sleep through the night I am pretty burnt out right now. So, for the next week or so I will be taking a little mini-vacation from the blog world. I’ll be back (with a vengeance!) hopefully a week or two before the holidays.
In the meantime, please check out the work going on at The Daly News, Make Wealth History, Post Growth, Cruxcatalyst, Growthbusters and nef’s Blog. I hope these guys (and girls) can keep your sustainable economics hunger satisfied for the next few weeks. And to have something to look forward to here, these are some of the drafts I’ll be working on turning into upcoming posts:
- How To Tell Your Growth Friend’s They’re Crazy (working title),
- The Economic Hierarchy of Needs (economics through maslow’s viewpoint), and
- The Universal Law of Diminishing Returns (no, really, think about it: this law applies to nearly everything!).
And, please feel free to comment, suggest/request on post topics. Lord knows sometimes I could use the motivation.
Have a good couple of weeks, my friends!
