Is Capitalism Sustainable?: Political Economy and the Politics of Ecology Hardcover - 1994

by Martin O'Connor


From the publisher

With the collapse of Soviet hegemony and Eastern bloc communism, the ascendancy of the image of the good society -- achieved under capitalism -- appears unassailable. But is it? Under market economies around the world, contemporary environmental problems are creating a major economic crisis of supply, putting into serious question the legitimacy of the capitalist system. This volume probes the many facets of capitalism's ecological contradictions and presents critical discussions of the politics of ecology under a free-market economy. Offering cogent analyses of the ways capitalism and liberal politics themselves are responding to this crisis, the book also presents the groundwork for meaningful social resistance to capitalist exploitatioMDNMns

First line

A long line of ecological economists have seen the economy not as a circular flow of exchange value, a merry-go-round between producers and consumers, but rather as the one-way entropic throughput of energy and materials.
