  • E.F. Schumacher - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    editorials criticizing the Labour government s ambitious nationalization plans In addition to all his endeavors in the private sector Schumacher served as chief economist for the National Coal Board for 20 years Early in his tenure at the Coal Board Schumacher was sent on a mission to Burma to teach its citizens how to achieve progress by following the Western model of economic growth Once there he quickly surmised that the Burmese were better served drawing from their own traditions rather than from Western ones He coined the term Buddhist economics to describe a model that in complete opposition to its Western counterpart didn t allow for unlimited growth and consumption but emphasized the use of renewable resources To those who questioned the relevance of Eastern philosophy to economics Schumacher replied Economics without Buddhism i e without spiritual human and ecological values is like sex without love He later returned to the Coal Board but working at one of the largest commercial organizations of the day contributed to Schumacher s deep seated conviction that large scale technologies were dehumanizing His experiences had led him to conclude that man is small and therefore small is beautiful It was this syllogism that inspired the title of his 1973 treatise Small Is Beautiful a sweeping indictment of the neoclassical model The work introduced Schumacher s concept of natural capital and outlined an alternative economy based on human scale decentralized and appropriate technologies that has inspired generations of environmentalists To the very end of his life Schumacher lived by his own prescriptions He baked his family s weekly bread supply with locally procured organic wheat that he ground himself in a hand operated flour mill Schumacher died in 1977 but his followers still advance his prescient economic vision through societies founded in his honor

  • Paradigm Shift - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    endlessly about liquidity stimulus derivatives bond markets sovereign debt AAA ratings and investment banker bonuses They never say a word about melting glaciers eroding coral reefs rising sea levels fizzing oceans or the methane that s bubbling out of the arctic tundra Like medieval theologians who argued endlessly about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin today s economists argue incessantly about how economic growth can be sustained forever on a finite planet Ten years from now as the blowback from the externalities of their way of doing business repeatedly hammers us and global warming kicks in with a vengeance we ll look back in shock and awe and wonder what it was about these logic freaks and their money narratives that so mesmerized us Five hundred years ago astronomers following Ptolemy s geocentric model of the universe were tearing their hair out trying to make sense of all their calculations of the sun moon and stars moving around above us in the night sky It was only when Copernicus pointed out that we are not the center of the universe the sun does not revolve around the Earth but rather the other way around that all their convoluted calculations fell magically into place Today something eerily similar is happening in the science of economics Economists and lay people alike are realizing that our human money economy is a subset of the Earth s larger bioeconomy rather than the other way around Over the next few years as this monumental shift of perspective kicks in all the economic ecological and financial craziness of the industrial era will evaporate and a new sustainable way of running our planetary household will fall magically into place Economics students especially PhD students in departments around the world have a crucial

  • Signs of Revolutionary Spring in Europe - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    only path forward is to reembrace the principle of radical egalitarianism underlying the abstract concept of communism Also worth mentioning is Badiou s ongoing intellectual collaboration with Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek whose most recent books First as Tragedy Then as Farce and Living in the End Times represent a compelling outline for radical politics based on an eschatological apocalyptism that strives to interrupt the contemporary course of history Then there is the anonymously authored The Coming Insurrection an anarchist manifesto that calls for the formation of autonomous communes from which to launch sabotage campaigns Jam everything this will be the first reflex of all those who rebel against the present order to block circulation is to block production as well Stéphane Hessel s Indignez vous Cry out is the most recent barometer of popular rage In it Hessel a 93 year old veteran of the World War II Resistance against Nazism exhorts today s youth to wage a war of resistance against capitalism in the same way clandestine networks fought the fascists The pamphlet has sold 600 000 copies so far And the entire continent has seen a cascade of passionate protests In October the prime minister of Iceland was pelted with eggs a man drove a cement truck into the gates of the Irish Parliament to protest bank bailouts and three million people in France participated in eight days of rebellion blockading oil refineries and fuel depots until gas stations ran dry In the following months students in London smashed up the headquarters of Britain s Conservative Party and Greece was shut down by its seventh general strike of the year as protesters carried signs that read Let us not live as slaves Now inspired by the Arab people s revolutionary spring there are signs that the European continent
