We have to radically rethink our financial techniques if we’re critical in regards to the local weather.
We’re surrounded by stuff. We purchase and purchase and purchase – it’s the muse of how our economies run, how they develop.
However all this shopping for, all this financial “rising”, is devastating folks and our planet. We’re in a harmful spiral of out-of-control useful resource use.
Within the third episode of All Hail The Planet – a collection delving into the social, financial and political forces undermining significant international motion on local weather change – Ali Rae speaks with financial anthropologist Jason Hickel, financial sociologist Juliet Schor, and improvement economist Ndongo Samba Sylla.
