Paul Krugman on growth

There’s been an interesting dialog just recently initiated by an op-ed by economist Paul Krugman in the New York Times.

Here’s Krugman’s original piece: Errors and Emissions. He wants to argue against what he calls “climate despair” – the argument that rising carbon dioxide emissions and economic growth are inextricably tied together.

Some responses: from physicist Mark Buchanan, Economists are blind to the limits of growth, and from Richard Heinberg at the Post Carbon Institute, Paul Krugman’s Errors and Omissions.

Krugman responded by doubling down on his argument with Slow Steaming and teh Supposed Limits to Growth
