Is sustainable growth an oxymoron?

In response to Tyler Cowen’s recent Kenneth Arrow Lecture at Stanford, I am reposting below my eight-part review and critique of Cowen’s important 2018 book Stubborn Attachments:

  1. What moral or legal duties do we owe to future generations? (27 Nov. 2018);
  2. Cowen’s axiom (28 Nov. 2018);
  3. Cowen’s hedge (29 Nov. 2019);
  4. An intertemporal golden rule (29 Nov. 2019);
  5. Cowen’s six critical issues (part 1 of 2) (30 Nov. 2019);
  6. Cowen’s six critical issues (part 2 of 2) (3 Dec. 2019);
  7. Our critique of Stubborn Attachments (4 Dec. 2019);
  8. An intertemporal golden rule: closing thoughts (4 Dec. 2019).

Cowen is one the most original economists and public intellectuals of our time, so I will have a lot more to say about Cowen’s recent lecture in my next few blog posts.
