FFS 036 - Chicken Nugget Capitalism
The end of Capitalism is nigh. Or we should certainly hope so.
Raj Patel makes a convincing case for the urgent need to think beyond capitalism if we are to move towards a carbon zero economy.
“Let us recognise that the system itself is dooming us and that we need to think outside it rather than within it” – Raj Patel.
If this sounds revolutionary, that’s precisely the point.
Raj and I discuss:
Why we shouldn’t call this era the “Anthropocene”
What Capitalism actually is
The frontiers of Capitalism and the search for the next best “cheap thing”
The Chicken McNugget: the symbol of modern capitalism
The Market Approach: Carbon pricing, Natural Capital, and voting with your fork
Thinking beyond Capitalism: a Theory of Change to get us to a carbon zero economy
