Slow Down : How Degrowth Communism Can Save the Earth, Hardback Book

Slow Down : How Degrowth Communism Can Save the Earth Hardback



Will green capitalism save the planet? Is it even trying?Not when the very logic of the capitalist system pits it against Earth's life-support systems, as the Japanese philosopher Kohei Saito demonstrates in this astonishing international bestseller. Drawing on cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines, Saito shows how nothing but a transformation of our economic life can save us from climate collapse.

Karl Marx himself reached this breakthrough at theend of his life, long before climate change had even begun.

It radically altered his vision of proletarian revolution.

Now that we are entering our own end-game, we must grasp Marx's final lesson before it is too late. If we are to avoid the most terrible political prospects of of climate change, the future must belong to degrowth communism, a fair and humane existence within the limits of nature.

There is no alternative: the endlessacceleration of capital has run out of road.

We must slow down.
