Week 8 - Discussion: Expenditure Politics (Original Post Due Wednesday, Responses Due Friday)


Watch “The Story of Stuff” by Annie Leonard (2007) and decipher David Owen’s 2009 essay respecting the interconnection betwixt environmental defence and economics. For divers environmentalists, a seemingly patent explanation to global problems is to subject expenditure of pi (i.e. Story of Stuff). However, our expenditure of “stuff” is intricately tied to the good-fortune of global, national, and topical economies in the vulgar economic classification. Is reducing esthetic expenditure the disintegration to our environmental challenges? How do we propitiate ideas of subjectd expenditure delay the deed that expenditure and spending are repeatedly viewed as indicators of financial good-fortune and conspicuous business? On a broader progeny, is capitalism at the character of environmental perdition?
