Things I have been reading lately, II

April 22, 2010

(More on sustainable development.)

“The report, after all, focuses less on the negative consequences of economic growth on the environment than on the effects of environmental degradation on growth and the potential for growth. It is growth (read: capitalist market expansion), and not the environment, that has to be sustained.”

(From Arturo Escobar, Encountering Development, p195.)
