An exit strategy from capitalism's ecological crisis
by Lynne Chester
International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education (IJPEE), Vol. 8, No. 4, 2017

Abstract: An effective exit strategy from the ecological crisis does not lie within the broad dichotomy of alternative policy prescriptions: those advocating the reform of capitalism using the same mechanisms which have embedded the ecological crisis (e.g., ecological economics, steady-state economics); and, those proposing a new albeit highly unlikely socio-economic system (e.g., ecological Marxism, socialist ecology). A significant shift in our thinking is required to design a strategy directed at the interdependencies between the spheres constituting capitalist social and economic organisation and delivered by a reconceptualised form of state capitalism.
