Governing degrowth Politics of the anthropocene III
Agnès Sinaï, Mathilde Szuba
Can degrowth become a realistic alternative political model ?
Governing growth rather than submitting to it : a new political history can be written, one in which the perspectives available are not only those of crisis but also those of creativity.
This book traces the contours of a biophysical economy , embedded in the cycles of nature , slow , local , and sober. On the horizon of this new paradigm, the degrowth is no longer a constraint but an ethical and physical necessity .
The 21st century will be known as that of a 'decline in energy'. Confronted as we are with a dramatic break in the history of time, it is imperative that we rapidly adopt a model other than productivism.
