Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Our obsession with economic growth is deadly | All Hail The Planet” – below is their description.
We’re surrounded by stuff. We buy and buy and buy – it’s the foundation of how our economies run, how they grow. But all this buying, all this economic ‘growing’ is devastating people and our planet. We’re in a dangerous spiral of out-of-control resource use.
Join Ali Rae in the third episode of ‘All Hail The Planet’ – a series delving into the social, economic and political forces undermining meaningful global action on climate change.
In this episode, Ali Rae speaks with economic anthropologist, Jason Hickle; economic sociologist, Juliet Schor; and development economist, Ndongo Samba Sylla.
