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.
