Boffins Books is delighted to be the bookseller at the Perth leg of a series of thought provoking evening seminars and discussions on 'Are We There Yet? Arriving at a Wellbeing Economy' featuring UK-based Dr Katherine Trebeck, a central figure in the global Wellbeing Economy Alliance and co-author of the new book The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a grown up economy.
"A must read for anyone who cares about social justice, the future of the biosphere and our place in it. Trebeck and Williams challenge us to think about what we owe to future generations and raise serious questions about pursuing economic growth as an end goal. An important and timely book worthy of a broard audience and vibrant discussion." -- Tim DiMuzio, University of Wollongong.
Dr Katherine Trebeck is Research Director at the global Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAII). She is touring Australia in September with her new book The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a grown up economy. Co-authored with Jeremy Williams, with a forward by Kate Raworth, the book urges us to move from enlarging the economy to improving it, and explores the benefits this could bring for all.
