Description

Obviously this won’t happen, in the end all he’s suggesting is “speculative science-fiction fairy tales to keep the existing economy chugging along”. He describes the history of capitalism and how it got us to where we are with many advances in technology but with a very dark side. One common ground is that high debt overhead forces more work to simply pay off the debts, thus more resource use.

He observes that the tragedy of covid might be enough of a shock to get us to reevaluate whether we have a healthy society or not. Ice sheets are thicker in the middle than they are around the edges, so as icebergs break off they once they expose taller and taller ice cliffs. A planet has finite boundaries and we are now staring in the face of many of them - pollution, resource exhaustion, etc. Hunger will tame the fiercest animals, it will teach decency and civility, obedience and subjugation to the most brutish, the most obstinate, and the most perverse.The Axial Age (800 BCE to 200 BCE) actually produced a decline in the scale of violence between humans (see Peter Turchin’s book Ultrasociety).

Hoe meer er geconsumeerd wordt - of we het nu nodig hebben of niet - hoe beter, en als we te weinig consumeren, komen grote groepen mensen in de miserie terecht omdat ze de eindjes niet meer aan elkaar kunnen knopen. Eindelijk is een goed onderbouwd boek verschenen waarin aangetoond wordt dat de hardnekkige economische dogma’s van deze tijd, die door links en rechts algemeen aangenomen worden, helemaal geen goddelijke natuurwetten zijn.

Second part is a brilliantly put together argument completed with quite a few well thought possible solutions to our main issues.
