FRED MAGDOFF ON CAPITALISM AND THE ENVIRONMENT
On this week’s episode of HFTF, scientist and writer Fred Magdoff discusses his brand new book (with John Bellamy Foster), What Every Environmentalist Needs to Know About Capitalism: A Citizen’s Guide to Capitalism and the Environment. Magdoff and Foster go against much of the “conventional wisdom” around environmentalism, and argue that the economic imperatives of our current system (capitalism) are incompatible with environmental sustainability. In other words, for Magdoff and Foster, there can be no “green” or “clean” capitalism! On the show, Magdoff lays out the basics of their argument and discusses what a sustainable society might look like. Enjoy the show!
