LSE Complexity Seminar
Convergence: Can the economy as we know it survive resource depletion?

Chris will lead an afternoon seminar and discussion group for the Complexity Group at the London School of Economics. 

Following up on recent Complexity seminars on climate change and energy, Chris will link the economy and resources with energy as one of several peaking resources.  The main point will be to illuminate how and why the economy requires perpetual compound growth and what might happen when this critical systemic feature encounters real-world limits. 

The majority of our plans over the next twenty years make a critical assumption that the economy will be there, largely intact and functioning, to fund the technologies and structural shifts we know we need to enact to meet challenges of energy and the environment.  There is every reason to suspect it may not.

Though this event will be populated primarily by members of the Compexity Group, there are a very few seats available to the public.  To inquire regarding the remaining seats and RSVP, please contact [email protected].  There is no cost to attend.
