Is Capitalism Unsustainable?
What does the ecological crisis mean for capitalism? And what does capitalism mean for the ecological crisis? What kind of economic transformation is required to get us back within safe ecological and planetary boundaries? Does that imply economic growth, green growth or degrowth? What should we be pushing our political representatives and leaders to do?
The University of Manchester hosts a debate on these questions and the political viability of a ‘post-growth’ economy.
A panel of esteemed politicians and academics will debate the topic, including:
Prof. Molly Scott-Cato MEP (UK Green Party)
Prof. Kevin Anderson (Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester)
Prof. Robert Pollin (Professor of Economics and Co-Director of the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst)
Prof. Giorgos Kallis (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Institute of Environmental Science & Technology)
Maeve Cohen (Rethinking Economics)
