Dovolj besed?

Knjižnica vam ponuja zbirko besedil v razmislek o družbi, v kateri živimo... aktivnostih, ki se odvijajo in še mnogočem...

Ker bi želeli zbrati članke in druge vire, ki so povezani z (alternativnimi) vizijami razvoja vas vabimo k posredovanju člankov/besedil/vizualnega materiala, s katerim bomo knjižnico dopolnili.

NOVO:

v slovenskem jeziku, ki govori o Času, delu in nedelu:

Lozar Anita, Proti delu, za počitnice.

"Zadnje čase je zelo moderno, da govorimo o tem, kako smo zaposleni, kako nimamo niti minute prostega časa. Ta moda je postala tako razširjena, da ljudje na tiste, ki imajo preveč časa, gledamo z viška. “Ne gre za to, da bi kdorkoli od nas hotel živeti na tak način, to je nekaj, v kar kolektivno silimo eden drugega.” Prišlo je tako daleč, da življenje neke osebe vrednotimo po tem, kako zaposlena je."

Nina Vodopivec, Pomagaj si sam, samoodgovornost kot izziv ali grožnja.

"S to novo paradigmo, tj. paradigmo samoodgovornosti, dejansko prihaja do premeščanja odgovornosti za družbeno blaginjo (in njen obstoj) z države na posameznika. In ta paradigma, ki se je sicer začela vzpostavljati že pred krizo, v resnici najbolj koristi neoliberalnim politikam pri vzpostavljanju vedno vitkejše (pravzaprav kar anoreksične) države. Prinaša namreč niz samoumevnosti, o katerih se danes ne sprašujemo več."

tretjega pa v angleškem jeziku, o koncu neskončne rasti in dvigalu:

Richard Heinberg, Why Growth Is Ending (the elevator pitch).

"Peak oil, peak debt, environmental impact. "

Materiali šole ne-rasti (scuola della Decrescita) v Pesariis (Udine), september 2011. predstavitve in dokumenti (več kot 20) za poglobitev argumentov o ne-rasti: predstavitve in dokumenti.

Joan Martinez-Alier, interviewed by: Lorenzo Pellegrini, Development and Change, Volume 43, Issue 1, pages 341–359, January 2012, "In environmental struggles, reproduction of human society and of nature’s functions are more important or just as important as fights over the (purported) economic surplus."

N. Kosoy, P. G Brown, K. Bosselmann, A. Duraiappah, B. Mackey, J. Martinez-Alier, D. Rogers, R. Thomson, Pillars for a flourishing Earth: planetary boundaries, economic growth delusion and green economy. "In the hue and cry about the ‘green economy’ leading up to Rio + 20 a number of simple points have been neglected. First, the purposes of the economy have been too narrowly conceived. Second, the role of demand management is vastly underplayed. Third, the assumptions about the nature of reality are inconsistent with contemporary science. Fourth, it is mired in a complex discourse about measurement, which fails to even recognize that all economies are dependent on living within Earth's biogeochemical constraints. Fifth, it uses a conceptual framework laid down in the 18th century and tries to apply it to the Anthropocene. The simple, but to many unthinkable, fact is that you cannot get to a flourishing or even sustainable Earth if you start with the assumptions of neo-classical economics. This is not to say that some of the neo-classical tools are not useful, but that they must be deployed in a framework that it does not and cannot supply."

Denis Bayon, Fabrice Flipo, François Schneider, la décroissance - dix questions pour comprendre et en débattre. Deset vprašanj za raumevanje razprav o ne-rasti (v francoskem jeziku).

Mark Pelling, David Manuel-Navarrete, Michael Redclift (ed.), Climate Change and the Crisis of Capitalism, A Chance to Reclaim, Self, Society and Nature, Routledge, Series: Routledge Studies in Human Geography,  November 28th 2011. "Are established economic, social and political practices capable of dealing with the combined crises of climate change and the global economic system? Will falling back on the wisdoms that contributed to the crisis help us to find ways forward or simply reconfigure risk in another guise? This volume argues that the combination of global environmental change and global economic restructuring require a re-thinking of the priorities, processes and underlying values that shape contemporary development aspirations and policy."

Patrick Schroeder, Revisiting our limits, March 12, 2012. "It’s 40 years since the publication of The Limits to Growth. In Europe and in China, writes Patrick Schroeder, a new wave of thinkers and decision-makers are beginning to revisit its core message." "And in Germany, the debate recently shifted when Wolfgang Schaeuble, the minister of finance, said in an interview with a leading newspaper that “as much as we strive on the one hand for the elimination of hunger throughout the world, on the other hand, in our own western developed countries, we have to strive for a limitation of economic growth."

Vincent Liegey. When Degrowth decolonises academia.

David Villano, The Growth of Degrowth Economics, Degrowth theory, whose supporters push policies to reduce economic activity and end our obsession with GDP, is gaining momentum in Europe and Canada. Will the movement reach U.S. soil?, Business & Economics, December 15, 2011. "What if we promoted policies to shrink our economy, rather than grow it? What if government officials called for a recession, perhaps a depression, as the answer to humanity’s most intractable challenges? As heretical as they sound, such questions frame very real policy proposals debated by a growing legion of economists, activists, and government officials representing the so-called Degrowth movement."

Canadian dimension, The Degrowth Issue, March/April 2012, Volume 46, Issue 2. "As Andrea Levy writes in her introduction to our theme on degrowth, “all but the plain stupid or willfully blind by now recognize that, unfettered by concern for the survival needs of planetary ecosystems, economic growth and its symbiont, the consumer society, is suicidal for the human species and genocidal for countless others."

Building an equitable green economy, brošura, "the green economy is not a state  but a process of  transformation and a constant dynamic progression. The Green Economy does away with the systemic distortions and dis-functionalities of the current mainstream economy and results in human well-being and equitable access to opportunity for all people, while safeguarding environmental and economic integrity in order to remain within the planet’s finite carrying capacity. The Economy cannot be Green without being Equitable."

Can we live inside the doughnut? Why the world needs planetary and social boundaries, Oxfam, Grow campaign, 13. February 2012. "When crossing unknown territory, a compass can be pretty handy. Achieving sustainable development for nine billion people has to be high on the list of humanity’s great uncharted journeys. So here’s an idea for a global-scale compass to point us in the right direction."

Jayne O'Donnell and Sarah Meehan, How retailers study and test us to maximize profit, USA TODAY, 3/2/2012. "Shoppers are like laboratory rats these days."

V ANGLEŠKEM JEZIKU:

•   Serge Latouche, Degrowth, whether you like it or not. Good planet, 22 October 2008. „According to Serge Latouche, the French economist, degrowth is happening. But sought for degrowth and undergone degrowth are not the same. The second one (recession) leads to crisis, starvations or wars. The first one, or chosen sobriety, means inventing a new society, which will make the word an happier place to live.“

•   Christine MacDonald, Goodbye "Shop Til You Drop" Mentality: Renegade Band of Economists Call for "Degrowth" Economy, AlertNet, 23 December 2011. „In this country, shopping is not just a national pastime. Consumer spending, which makes up about 70 percent of the economy, is a sort of patriotic duty -- never more so than in the last four years of economic malaise.“

•   Richard Heinberg, Life after the end of economic growth, A continually rising GDP is not necessarily possible – or even desirable. So why do policymakers obsess over it?, guardian.co.uk, 30 November 2011. „The tide of economic growth that has flowed since the second world war may finally be ebbing. For politicians and most economists, this is like saying the sky is falling. Growth has become guidepost and grail, the sine qua non of economic existence. Growth is necessary to job creation and the health of businesses. Without growth the rolls of the homeless and jobless swell, requiring governments to shoulder more responsibility; yet at the same time tax revenues fall, making both new and existing government debt unbearable.“

•    Herman Daly. Uneconomic Growth: Conflicting Paradigms. 1996. »Growth in GNP is so favored by economists that they call it "economic" growth, thus ruling out by terminological baptism the very possibility of "uneconomic" growth in GNP. But there is no a priori reason why at the margin the environmental and social costs of growth in GNP could not be greater than the production benefits.«
•    Nate Hagens, The Common Link with Climate Change, Peak Oil, Limits To Growth, Etc. - Belief Systems, December 2009. »Many of the issues discussed on this bandwidth are large, long term, and threatening.

It is my belief these 3 are linked by an underlying cultural growth/debt imperative running into a planet with finite sources and sinks.«
•    Christopher Joyce, Belief In Climate Change Hinges On Worldview, Npr, februar 2010. »Over the past few months, polls show that fewer Americans say they believe humans are making the planet dangerously warmer, despite a raft of scientific reports that say otherwise.

•   Serge Latouch, Why Less Should Be So Much More, Degrowth Economics, Le Monde diplomatique (France), 17 november 2004.

"From the beginning, Takis Fotopoulos’ book aims very high, intending “to propose a new liberatory project, not just as a new utopia but as perhaps the only way out of the crisis” (p. 11). This inclusive democracy project is “an effort to integrate society with polity, the economy, and Nature” (p. 9)."

"There are practical ways in which we could immediately start to save our species from ecological and social crisis and our planet from being destroyed by our greed. So why aren’t we adopting them? What prevents us from desiring a simpler and better way of life?"

•   Serge Latouche, De-growth: an electoral stake?, The International Journal of inclusive democracy, vol.3, no.1, January 2007. “The insertion of the ecological component in a radical democratic political project is essential. And it is all the more imperative as the questioning of the values and trends of present society, implied by such a project, is inseparable from the critique of the imaginary of “development” on which we live”."
