Politics of the anthropocene III
Can degrowth become a realistic alternative political model ?
In light of the risk of collapse that weighs on industrial societies today, this volume defends new paths based on temperance and deceleration: establishing an environmental transition revenue, basing money creation on the limits of the planet, fair rationing of fossil fuels, the development of permaculture, work-sharing et cetera. It presents certain experiments in this area, such as the Cascadia bioregion in Northern California.
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.
