Description

Jason Hickel w tym kompleksowym, zgrabnym i niezadętym eseju rozprawia się z mitami na temat kapitalizmu, kreśląc jego rzeczywistą, brutalną historię, obala paradygmat wzrostu, krytykuje zachodni dualizm człowiek-przyroda, a przy tym proponuje wiele rozwiązań, które mogłyby uratować planetę i jej mieszkańców, przedstawia wizję świata postkapitalistycznego i postwzrostowego - a jest to świat, o którym warto marzyć, o który warto walczyć, mimo że jest utopią. It's not just the kind of abstract and sometimes metaphysical philosophising that you often read in degrowth books, especially French ones. ways of thinking that are assumed to be truisms but are at the heart of most of the crises and injustices we see today. His media appearances include Viewsnight, the Financial Times, the BBC World Service, Sky News All Out Politics, BBC Business Matters, Thinking Allowed, Renegade TV, NPR, Doha Debates, TRT World, the LA Times, Citations Needed, and Russell Brand's podcast Under the Skin. For anyone confused about the process of the Enclosures or M-C-M’, this is definitely a useful resource.

It is perhaps well enough that the people of the nation do not know or understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. This one is social science, with facts and figures, and some very good insides about capitalism and how it is incompatible with sustainability. More growth means that more people have more money to spend, which means that people lead better lives, right?

and Mark Jacobson, Gail Tverberg’s blog Our Finite World, the recent book Bright Green Lies, and others. In minder dan 300 vlot geschreven pagina’s wordt duidelijk gemaakt dat het blijvend nastreven van continue economische groei niet alleen overbodig, maar ook onhaalbaar is en zelfs enorm schadelijk voor onze planeet. The ideas it proposes run so contrary to some of the basic assumptions we are taught that I decided to let my thoughts stew for a bit before I wrote this review.

This book lives in the same space as “Donut Economics” by Kate Raworth, but is executed much much better.Even though I agree in pretty much all what the book claims, I find the book very negative and depressing. Marx’s exchange-value (selling private commodity on market for profit) triumphing over use-value (intrinsic use). Less is More is required reading for anyone interested in what it means to live in the Anthropocene, and what we can do about it. By modern standards these ancient empires were not exactly apostles of nonviolence, but compared to the “constant battles” that came before, they were an important step forward, and everyday life became much less violent. Exponential growth is possible only with endless extraction , which involves bringing more and more of the planet and human activities under the economy, and this is causing us to fast approach the point where our planet cannot regulate and regenerate itself successfully.
