In the initial phases of engaging with the concept of Post-growth and Wellbeing Economy, Post Growth Guide encouraged us to use our voice and company as a platform for change. In essence PGG helped us see that what can seem radical and counter-intuitive in the present, may become reality in the future - but only if we believe, mobilise and act.

In essence, "Setting Limits to Growth" is more than a book; it's a blueprint for the future of ethical and sustainable business practices. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone interested in making their business not just survive but thrive in harmony with our planet's boundaries.

I am grateful that the Post Growth Guide is experimenting so bravely and that they're documenting their journey in such a clear and useful way. "Setting Limits to Growth" offers practical tools that can help entrepreneurs implement strong sustainability principles in their own businesses. Using a systemic lens, it shows entrepreneurs that by changing their own business, they can contribute to a larger transformation of the economy for sustainability. The honest, humble, and humorous tone throughout the book makes it a pleasure to read. I look forward to seeing what the Post Growth Guide comes up with next!

Highly recommend to everyone wanting to learn about post growth. There is a need for a new startup narrative where success isn’t only measured in how much VC funding and how fast you’re gaining unicorn status. The Post Growth Guide and the many impressive case-stories, should be incorporated in business schools and programs curriculum. And also for intra-preneurs in the corporate environment.

Highly Recommended: "Setting Limits to Growth" by Marcus Feldthus and Oscar Haumann In the compelling and insightful read, "Setting Limits to Growth," authors Marcus Feldthus and Oscar Haumann craft a narrative that is as engaging as it is instructive. This book, grounded in their real-life experiences and informed by the Leverage Point Framework developed by Donella Meadows, offers a comprehensive guide for businesses navigating the complexities of the 21st century. One of the most striking chapters, and my personal favorite, focuses on the practical implementation of setting wage caps and product prices. It strikes a chord by showcasing the intricate balance between maintaining growth and adhering to sustainable practices. This chapter, among others, is not just a lesson in business management but a reflection on ethical entrepreneurship. The book is particularly relevant for startups, small and medium-sized enterprises, and indeed any organization looking to understand the intricate balance between growth and sustainability. It is a must-read for those who wish to make decisions aligned with the latest scientific insights on ecological limits while navigating the realities of economic systems. In my professional role, I have found the principles outlined in this guide invaluable. The emphasis on systems thinking has significantly improved my decision-making processes, fostering a more holistic and sustainable approach to business development. The practical tools, like the Steady State Forecaster and the Impact Calculator, have been particularly beneficial in planning and evaluating the long-term impact of business decisions. For anyone on the brink of purchasing this book, know that it is not merely a read; it is an investment in a sustainable future for your business. Feldthus and Haumann do not just preach about a post-growth economy; they guide you through creating one, offering a clear pathway punctuated by real examples, practical tools, and thought-provoking insights. In essence, "Setting Limits to Growth" is more than a book; it's a blueprint for the future of ethical and sustainable business practices. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone interested in making their business not just survive but thrive in harmony with our planet's boundaries.

The Post Growth Guide just launched its book on Setting Limits to Growth! I had the both honour and pleasure to read it before it was published, and I simply can't recommend it enough. The book does a fantastic job balancing academic rigour and practice-oriented examples, making it accessible and relevant at the same time. It makes excellent teaching material that will provide students with much-needed insights into how alternative, more sustainable entrepreneurship fit for the 21st century is possible, and foster their systems thinking capabilities. Check out the Post Growth Guides website, their resources and consider joining a rapidly growing group of academics and practitioners that recognise our planetary limits to growth and the need to step-up our efforts.

Marcus and Oscar have crafted a practical guide for any business that's hit the growth ceiling and is ready to be pragmatic. Whether you're aiming to protect your organisation's purpose from hungry VCs, boost your resilience to an increasingly unstable world, or simply curious about what business looks like when you embrace limits, this book is a must-read. It's not just a guide; it's an invitation to join the vanguard of businesses paving the way for a planet-positive future.

It was hugely inspiring and energising to gather with a big group of like-minded fellow Post Growth travelers from all specialisms and many countries. It's so important to social movements to have clear but inviting community leadership, and Marcus and Oscar have done a great job in providing it. I look forward to many more. It was great to hear the cases and activity vectors of leaders like PGG and Melanie Rieback. For me the standout resource discovery from the meetup was Erin Remblance's Substack which is a trove of detailed, inspiring cases where degrowth and post growth is being lived today.
