The Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy (CASSE) has released an entertaining animated short called Add It Up that outlines the conflict between economic growth and a finite planet. The animation, produced by film students at the University of Southern California, is available on CASSE’s website and YouTube, as well as here:

The Daly News

CASSE has also officially launched their new website! Part of their launch is the beginning of a new blog, now known as The Daly News. Named after the award-winning economist and incisive writer who developed the concept of the steady state economy, Herman Daly, The Daly News will have it’s official kick-off post by it’s honorable namesake on March 1.

In addition to Professor Daly, the core rotation of authors at The Daly News includes Brian Czech (wildlife biologist, ecological economist, and author of Shoveling Fuel for a Runaway Train), BrentBlackwelder (former president of Friends of the Earth and founder of American Rivers), and Rob Dietz (environmental scientist and executive director of CASSE). There is even a rumor that yours truly might be privileged enough to post along side these greats as a guest contributor! (I hope I can measure up!) You can access the blog on CASSE’s website or via RSS feed.
