This book puts the Green Economy to the test, its promises, consequences and blind spots. - Can efficiency be a solution if it results in even more consumption? - Is it possible to save nature by putting a price on the services it provides? - Should we rely on technological solutions to save us? As the economic and ecological bases of prosperity are increasingly endangered and the gap between rich and poor widens, the Green Economy should offer us hope. Yet the Green Economy cares little about politics, barely registers human rights, does not recognize social factors and suggests the possibility of reform without conflict. It suggests that the world as we know it can continue with green growth, based primarily on large-scale technological solutions. This book outlines a way to overcome global crises from a social viewpoint.
