Ecology of Capitalism

Program #LEVR001. Recorded in Medford, MA on December 12, 1999.

The logic of global capitalism is destroying the planet. It puts profits over the welfare of people and excessive production over ecological sustainability. Massive protests against powerful institutions like the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization as well as so-called free trade deals draw in more and more people who believe that it is time for a different model that is sensitive to humans needs and the environment. How might we move beyond capitalism to a deeper understanding of how commodification and commercialism affect relationships both between people and nature?

Recorded at Tufts University.
