Das neue Wirtschaftssystem
Felix Ekhardt, Universität Rostock
Ohne ambitionierte „grüne“ Politik wird es nicht gehen, ergänzt um einen neuen Lebensstil: Statt hippem Auto, täglich Fleisch und Kaffee braucht es Carsharing, Fleisch und Kaffee an Feiertagen.
Stefan Schleicher, Wegner Center on Climate and Global Change
We need a new paradigm, focused on functionalities: thermal, mechanical, communicative, emotional.
Daniel O'Neill, University of Leeds
We need a steady state economy (SSE): limited resource use, stabilised population, limited inequality, reduced working hours, to reform the monetary system (all money should be created and spent by the government) and to change the way to measure progress.
Juliet Schor, Boston College
We need a new economy of true wealth, focused on small companies.
Peter Victor, York University
The environmental impact depends on intensity and scale. A low or no growth scenario is possible.
Saskia Sassen, Coumbia University
Finance is like a seed. We have to catch it at the right time and use the money for real things. Crisis is part of finance. The solution is to use capital to clean the environment and feed and house everybody. There would be no unemployed people and no „unemployed“ capital in search of increasingly speculative gain.
