[ Juliet Schor // Working Less ] from Extraenvironmentalist on Vimeo.

Interview with Juliet Schor made during the International Conference on Degrowth in the Americas in Montreal 2012.

Juliet Schor is talking about the “fast fashion model”, which is about an intensification of resource use and the short lifetime of goods. Further she talks about changes of consumption habits with the financial crash. Another question discussed is, what happens to the American dream with the crisis and in a degrowth future. The 2nd half of the interview is about working hour reductions, ways to do it and possible positive outcomes of such a change.
