Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. In his writings Gorz condemns the speculative global economic system and anatomizes its terminal crisis.

Advocating an exit from capitalism through the self-limitation of needs and the networked use of the latest technologies, he outlines eclogica practical, democratically based solution to our current predicament. Compiled by Gorz, Ecologica is intended as a final distillation of his eoclogica and thought, a guide to the survival of our planet.

It is a work of political, rather than scientific ecology—Gorz aruges that the key to planetary survival is not a surrender to environmental experts and eco-technocrats, but a switch to non-consumerist modes of living that would amount to a type of cultural revolution.

Many of his derided early warnings about globalization and environmental degradation have become commonplace discourses in political debates today.

grz Oct 29, Ian Davies rated it it was amazing. This would be a great introduction to Gorz, it’s a collection of five articles and two interviews from between and that he compiled himself. He was an inspirational and relevant thinker and I was very lucky to study his ideas at Uni. The book covers many different strands of his thinking over the years, but the other reviews I’ve seen draw attention to how he predicted the financial crisis.

I thought it was interesting enough to quote in full in place of a review, which is beyond me: Like the other northern girz, the United States economy suffers from a shortage of creditworthy demand. However, it alone is capable of offsetting that shortage by yorz itself to accumulate debt or, in other words, by effectively printing money.


To prevent creditworthy demand falling and the economy going ecplogica recession, the Central Bank encourages households to get into debt with their banks and consume what they hope to earn in the future.

It is the growing indebtedness of ‘middle class’ households that was and remains the main engine of growth. At the end of the s, each household owed on average as much money as it hoped to earn in the next 15 months. Inhouseholds spent billion dollars more than they earned and this consumption, which was not linked to any productive work, was reflected in a deficit of billion dollars a year in the United States current account balance.

It was entirely as though the United States was borrowing externally what it was lending internally: By buying overseas billion dollars worth of goods more than they sold, the United States was keeping the world awash with liquidity.

Virtually every country in the world competed to sell the Americans more than the Americans bought from them – that is to say, for the ‘privilege’ of working for American consumers. Far from ever thinking of calling in US debts, America’s creditors did exactly the opposite: However, this amazing state of ecolotica can last only so long as the Wall Street Stock Exchange continues to rise and the dollar doesn’t fall in relation to other currencies.

Ecologica : Andre Gorz :

When Wall Street goes into long-term decline and the dollar begins to weaken, the fictional character of outstanding dollar balances will become evident and the world banking system eclogica be in danger of collapsing like a house of cards.

Capitalism ‘is teetering on the edge of the abyss’. In this way, the stock-market bubble was followed by the dot. In three years, it has increased the stock-market value of the property sector from 20 to 60 trillion dollars.

No one can predict what will follow. The bigger a speculative bubble, the more it threatens, when it bursts, to bring about the collapse of the banking system and of currencies.

The trouble of course – as he mentions himself with a quote from Robert Kurz – is that the financial bubble is just ‘a marvelous machine for creating money’. Creo que puedes estar o no de acuerdo con sus ideas.
