The Constant Economy has been widely reviewed. In some, it has been enthusiastically welcomed (‘an environmentalists wet-dream!). In others it has been roundly trashed. Here are links to the main reviews, including the negatives.

Zac: Dealing with Climate Change

Proceeds from sales of the book will all go to Ecology Grants Ltd, which Zac set up to raise funds and distribute them to a wide range of cutting edge environmental campaigns.



I have enjoyed Zac Goldsmith's book, The Constant economy.  He suggests a multitude of mechanisms to help the planet to survive for another generation or two before we control our population or the four horsemen ride in to do it for us.

Norman Tebbit, The Times


The Constant Economy is a compelling read, and inspiring in its positive solution-orientated focus.

Caroline Lucas, The Guardian
