About this book

Focusing on the economic principle of commoditization, this book points out that our propensity toward environmental destruction can be understood as a result of certain hidden economic forces. These forces drive social and economic development towards increasing mobilization of energy and material beyond what is actually needed to achieve general prosperity and basic human needs. The author explains the complex concept of commoditization using examples from key sectors of society. The book is interdisciplinary in scope and will appeal to a wide variety of environmental professionals.

Contents

Introduction. The Privileged Qualities of Commodities. Evolution, Systems, and Commoditization. Commoditization and the Distortion of Development. Systematic Oppression. The Institutional Development of the Commoditized Economy. Ecology and Commoditization. Toward a Coordinated Decommoditization Strategy.
