Degrowth is an umbrella term that critiques the centrality of economic growth in our societies and embraces alternatives that are ecologically sustainable and socially just. There has been a rise in critiques of growth and a burgeoning discussion on degrowth, but the Soviet experience and post-Soviet contexts have been largely absent from it. During this lecture I will start bringing the two together. After briefly introducing degrowth, I will address how growth and productivism have been pursued in the Soviet Union and contemporary Russia. I will also explore how the intellectual thought from this geographical area connects to debates within degrowth.
