During a virtual summit organized by the Nobel Foundation and major science academies this week, Steven Chu, a WLA Nobel Prize laureate and professor of physics at Stanford University, said one huge task ahead was weaning global economic systems off continuous growth as their main aim, something incompatible with the Earth’s finite resources.

“You have to design an economy based on no growth or even shrinking growth,” he said, arguing “prosperity” could be maintained even if that approach was adopted.
