Degrowth or Decadence

Thinking in terms of degrowth does not mean breaking with growth, but rather with the ideology of accumulation. Degrowing means a decision to revalue things and our relations with our surroundings. It's worth asking ourselves which we would choose: a calm degrowth or an unsustainable social pressure? By Ramón Alcoberro.

A World Divided - or Coming Together?

Decades of pro-market policies have significantly widened the gap between rich and poor across the world. With the possibility of protracted austerity measures in the North and the global economic downturn affecting countries in the South, this trend now threatens peace and security internationally, argues Paul Rogers.
