The end of our high-growth world was underway well before Covid-19 arrived. According to Danny Dorling fertility rates, growth in GDP per person, and even technological progress have all steadily declined since the 1970's. Rather than lament this turn of events, Dorling says we should embrace it as a moment of promise and a move toward stability. Dorling was interviewed by economist and broadcaster Linda Yueh, you can find out more about his new book Slowdown here: https://bit.ly/3foP5M2

#128: Slowing the world down, with Danny Dorling

The Prospect Interview
Episode artwork
Read more

As the world slows down, many of us are thinking—what comes next? Oxford geographer Danny Dorling joins the Prospect Interview to discuss what a world after growth might look like. His latest book, Slowdown: The end of the great acceleration–and why it’s good for the planet, the economy, and our lives was written long before Covid-19 forced much of the world to stop, but many of his reflections on what a post-growth society might look like feel ever more relevant today.

Danny Dorling and Zoe Williams: Slowdown

London Review Bookshop Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Although our events programme is on hold at the moment, we’re delighted that Danny Dorling and Zoe Williams could get together virtually to record this podcast in lieu of the planned event.


In his intriguing and counterintuitive new book Slowdown (Yale), Danny Dorling argues that, contrary to what most of us believe, human life is actually slowing down, in diverse areas from birth rate to GDP to technological innovation. And, what’s more, in an arresting graphic style combining text and data with illustrations by Kirsten McClure, he shows how slowing down can be good for the planet, for the economy and for our lives in general.


For more information on the book and Danny's project, you can visit the Slowdown website here

Along with Sally Tomlinson, Danny Dorling has written one of the most interesting books on a subject that has threatened to overwhelm us all: Brexit. Called ‘the must-read book about Brexit’ and ‘a much-needed mirror’, Rule Britannia suggests that whatever the outcome, Britain must consider its past if it is ever to make sense of its future.
