The Life Required. Political Economy in the Long Emergency

Title:
The Life Required. Political Economy in the Long Emergency
Authors:
Orr, David
Abstract:
The neo-classical economy has assumed the dominant role in global affairs, riding roughshod over political systems and society alike. The present economy is predicated on continual growth, externalizing its full costs, and inequality, and is powered by fossil fuels that are rapidly changing the climate. The ratio of true wealth to ‘ilth’ has shifted to the latter. The prospects for a durable and fair economy will depend greatly on strengthening democratic controls. It will begin from the bottom up and is evident in the gathering momentum of social movements worldwide.
