[ Joan Martinez-Alier // Ecological Economics] from Extraenvironmentalist on Vimeo.

Interview with Joan Martinez-Alier made during the International Conference on Degrowth in the Americas in Montreal 2012.

Why has it taken so long until climate change and degrowth became topics? He talks about “Debt-ocracy” and the hope that the financial crisis can open up discussions about the real economy. Another topic of the interview is the role of ecological economics, at the university as well as its role for social movements and social movements in general.
