Laurie Mercier talks with Old Mole Joe Clement about the argument for degrowth within international environmental, anti-colonial and anti-capitalist movements. Degrowth proposes radical wealth distribution by way of a planned scale-down and re-organization of the economy in ways that increase well-being while reducing extraction, inequality, exploitation, and waste. They critique the influence of growth on how we understand what we need and can do to change our economy, both to avert ecological collapse and realize freedom and justice.
