Craig Barnes: Herman Daly

| 0 Comments

For thirty years Herman Daly has been  a voice in the wilderness detailing the flaws in the growth economy, examining promises of prosperity that neither technology nor resource manipulation can ever fulfill.  Not only are there limits to growth, growth does not feed our spiritual or moral lives, a reality almost completely ignored by neo-classical economists.  Daly's Steady State Economics is still iconic for those who see the advantages of small scale production, decentralization, increased durability of products, and increased long-run efficiency in the the use of scarce resources.  In this conversation he lays it all out in vivid detail.

Craig Barnes: Jacqueline St. Joan

| 0 Comments

Jacqueline St. Joan is a former judge, law professor, feminist and now a novelist whose My Sisters Made of Light strips back the veil from honor killing and women's chattelization in Pakistan.  St. Joan weaves a story of intrigue and passion and in the telling lays bare practices that will chill westerners to the bone.  The story may never see the light of day in Pakistan and the names of her informers have to be disguised, so deep are the fears of both men and women on this subject.
