Abstract (German)

Modern economies are structurally dependent upon continued economic growth and orthodox macroeconomics assumes that economies will grow indefinitely. Due to biophysical limits and poor performance in terms of wellbeing and social justice, alternative performance indicators and frameworks are needed. This project consists of three parts: measuring economic performance; sustainable work and modelling climate response conflicts
