What We Eat and What We Value: Re-Embedding Markets in Ecology
Social scientists have written a great deal about the social embeddedness of markets. In this talk the speaker would like to draw attention to the ecological embeddedness of markets-about the materials economy that we live in and live off. The markets that we have created, especially for agriculture and our food systems, exist outside of ecology, outside of nature. They work on the principle that nature by itself has no value and no limits, and they have facilitated a materials economy that is destroying our planet along with our health. The speaker argues that healing ourselves and our planet requires us to re-embed our understanding of markets within ecology. This implies taking seriously, the three D’s--Degrowth, Diversity, and Decentralisation, but also reconsidering what constitutes as value.
