Explores ideas of de-growth and post-development and their often ecological underpinnings. Relates such ideas to increasing concerns around the Anthropocene. Ideas around collectivity and reciprocity as part of thrift are analysed and related to the idea of thriving. The Voluntary Simplicity movement is looked to as a case study of thrifty living, and its potential for genuine societal change considered.
