From Steady State to Ecological Economics (Prof. Herman Daly) - Circular Metabolism Podcast #35

📺 Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast 📺. Hello everyone and Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast, I am your host, Aristide from Metabolism of Cities. In this podcast we interview thinkers, researchers, activists, policy makers and practitioners to better understand the metabolism of our cities and how to reduce their environmental impact in a socially just and context-specific way.

On today’s episode I am very fortunate to receive one researcher that has helped laying the foundation for most of my colleagues and people we have received on this podcast work. He has co-develop and used two essential analogies that are essential for doughnut economics, post-degrowth, and even circular economy. These analogies are Steady State Economics and Ecological Economics. My guest today is Herman Daly which is emeritus Professor at the University of Maryland and was a senior economist at the World Bank for 6 years. He was the author of the book Steady-State Economics and the editor of the all-star anthology Toward a Steady-State Economy including authors such as Georgescu-Roegen, Boulding, Schumacher, Meadows and many others. He was also the co-founder and associated editor of the academic journal Ecological Economics. He received countless awards for his work.

On this episode, we talk about how steady-state economics could be applied and helped to kickstart ecological economics but also about the controversial topic of population regulation (what is your opinion on that?).
