Political Economy Of The Environment

Saturday, Oct 5, 2013

Political Economy Of The Environment: A Conference of the Union for Radical Political Economics

Sponsors: Union For Radical Political Economics (URPE) & New Politics

We are living in a period of increasing environmental crisis and growing inequalities within and between the countries of the world. The obstacles to sustainable development and the equitable distribution of the products of our labor lie in the ways in which our political economic system operates.

The necessary technology is already available, and the resources required to end the use of fossil fuels, for example, exist. But multinational corporations, and the governments they control, base their decisions on the maximization of profits, not on the well-being of the world’s people.

Understanding and challenging capitalism is therefore essential for the building of local, national and international environmental movements. The goal of this conference is both to clarify areas of agreement among progressive environmental activists and to promote friendly discussion of disagreements.
