When less is more - Sufficiency: Terminology, rationale and potentials
Jan 2013 – Overview & framework, Other papers
This paper is part of a research project dealing specifically with the question of how sufficiency can emerge in a society and how policy can help to shape this process. The notion of sufficiency in particular is as many-faceted as it is controversial. On the one hand, it often triggers fear and defensive reactions. On the other hand, some proponents promise a simplification of life, an economy of proximity, or the ‘liberation from overabundance’.
