Rest in peace Richard Douthwaite

Richard Douthwaite, Westport, Co. Mayo, has passed away. He was a hero to many of us in Ireland and abroad who strive to promote sustainable local development as opposed to growth and materialism. Tributes are pouring in from around the world and can be read here on Feasta's website.
Richard was a fortune-teller of sorts and his work and writing educated many about green economics. He wrote 'The Growth Illusion' (1992) and 'Short Circuit: Strengthening Local Economies in an Unstable World' (1996).

Thanks Richard and rest in peace.
