Christian Arnsperger (in his own words): "I'm an economist (born on July 26, 1966) who's interested in social ethics, in epistemology (whatever that is), and above all in the transition from today's unsustainable system to a plurality of sustainable alternatives. I grew up in a German family in France and in the USA. I studied economics in Strasbourg (France) and Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), going on to a Ph.D. in 1995 and, in 2006, a "habilitation." My main employer is the Belgian National Science Foundation (F.R.S.-FNRS). I teach in the economics and sociology departments of the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, and I do my research at the Hoover Chair for Economic and Social Ethics."

Our basic intuition, which we started out by developing in a series of articles, was that a genuinely sustainable society requires a circular and regenerative economy which, as a result, needs to give up growth as it guiding and regulating principle.
