Our obsession with economic growth is deadly | All Hail | Climate Crisis

From: Salvation

We need to radically rethink our economic systems if we are serious about climate.

We are surrounded by stuff. We buy and buy and buy – it’s the basis of how our economies run, how they grow.

But all this buying, all this economic “growing” is devastating to people and our planet. We are in a dangerous spiral of uncontrolled resource use.

In the third installment of All Hail The Planet — a series that delves into the social, economic, and political forces undermining meaningful global action on climate change — Ali Rae speaks with economic anthropologist Jason Hickel, economic sociologist Juliet Schor, and development economist Ndongo Samba Sylla.
