A thread of my reactions to @Leigh_Phillips attack on degrowth in his @_ourEconomy article. #degrowth #postgrowth #ecologicaleconomics #Socialism
It is an example of the way pro-growth socialist environmentalism often dresses up social democratic & capitalist ideas in radical rhetoric. Most of the logic undermines socialism as much as degrowth.
For example Phillips argues that CFCs got regulated away, and we didn't have to give up hairspray. For him, this is an example of how regulating markets can lead to absolute decoupling. Ergo we don't need degrowth. But by the same logic, we don't need socialism either.
