Bookpresentation: Degrowth - A Vocabulary for a New Era
Buchvorstellung: Degrowth - A Vocabulary for a New Era
When the language in use is inadequate to articulate what begs to be articulated, then it is time for a new vocabulary. A movement of activists and intellectuals has called for the decolonization of public debate from the idiom of economism and the abolishment of economic growth as a social objective. "Simplicity", "conviviality", "autonomy", "care", "the commons" and "dépense", the social and ritual destruction of accumulated surplus, are some of the words that express what a degrowth society might look like.
