Text Quotes
For at the end of the day, prosperity goes beyond material pleasures  (Tim Jackson Quotes) We spend money we don’t have, on things we don’t need, to make impressions that don’t matter  (Tim Jackson Quotes) The care and concern of one human being for another is a peculiar ‘commodity.’ It can’t be stockpiled. It becomes degraded through trade. It isn’t delivered by machines. Its quality rests entirely on the attention paid by one person to another. Even to speak of reducing the time involved is to misunderstand its value  (Tim Jackson Quotes) In short, avoiding the scourge of unemployment may have less to do with chasing after growth and more to do with building an economy of care, craft and culture. And in doing so, restoring the value of decent work to its rightful place at the heart of society  (Tim Jackson Quotes) If we are going to be able to create a new economic vision, companies will need to rethink every aspect of their operations; their bottom lines, ownership structures, demands on financial returns, how they raise capital. For example, an ethical company would say it should only take a fair share of the planet’s resources and campaign on this  (Tim Jackson Quotes) The philosophical point is that our happiness and wellbeing is not based on incomes rising. This is not just the wisdom of sages but of ordinary people. Prosperity is more social and psychological: it’s about identification, affiliation, participation in society and a sense of purpose  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Big companies are reliant on institutional investors on a punishing schedule which leads to ruthless behaviour. This form of capitalism with this structure and incentives will never deliver sustainability  (Tim Jackson Quotes) There is a real fear around shifting from our existing economic system because people believe it gives us social organisation, a sense of freedom, and the ability to be nice to each other. Growth is seen as a social lubricant that allows us to be socially responsible  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Firms produce goods for households - that’s us - and provide us with incomes, and that’s even better, because we can spend those incomes on more goods and services. That’s called the circular flow of the economy  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Productivity - the amount of output delivered per hour of work in the economy - is often viewed as the engine of progress in modern capitalist economies. Output is everything. Time is money. The quest for increased productivity occupies reams of academic literature and haunts the waking hours of C.E.O.s and finance ministers  (Tim Jackson Quotes) It is the accuracy and detail inherent in crafted goods that endows them with lasting value. It is the time and attention paid by the carpenter, the seamstress and the tailor that makes this detail possible  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Questioning growth is deemed to be the act of lunatics, idealists and revolutionaries. But question it we must  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Our own relentless search for novelty and social status locks us into an iron cage of consumerism. Affluence has itself betrayed us  (Tim Jackson Quotes) The idea of a non-growing economy may be an anathema to an economist. But the idea of a continually growing economy is an anathema to an ecologist  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Novelty is adaptive when things are changing and you need to adapt yourself. Tradition is essential to lay down the stability to raise families and form cohesive social groups  (Tim Jackson Quotes) [We are] persuaded to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need to create impressions that won’t last on people we don’t care about  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Every society clings to a myth by which it lives. Ours is the myth of economic growth  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Status-driven, conspicuous consumption thrives from the language of novelty  (Tim Jackson Quotes) We have stood up and said continuing growth in the Western world is unjust, inappropriate and potentially destabilising. Having said that, we understand why governments do it, so there is an onus on us to show there are other stories and to identify the institutional innovations you might need in order to arrive at this other place  (Tim Jackson Quotes) Prosperity consists in our ability to flourish as human beings - within the ecological limits of a finite planet. The challenge for our society is to create the conditions under which this is possible. It is the most urgent task of our times.  (Tim Jackson Quotes)
