New No-Nonsense Guide

No-Nonsense Guide to Degrowth and Sustainability

The world’s addiction to economic growth continues with barely any recognition that this is a problem.

The No-Nonsense Guide to Degrowth & Sustainability looks deeper into the idea of economic growth – to trace its history and understand why it has become so unchallengeable and powerful.

And then it goes beyond that to present the alternative – how we can kick our dirty habit.

    Detained World

    Across the globe, migrants - men and women, the young and the old - are routinely deprived of their liberty. The Eastern European states prefer isolated former barracks in the woods. The British go for closed prisons. Australians like to warehouse migrants in camps on their neighbours' land mass.

    The problem is getting worse. States are holding people on the move for longer, and in greater numbers, than ever before. Between them, Europe and the US imprisoned close to one million migrants in 2011.

    The January/February issue of New Internationalist will look at the consequences for migrants and society as a whole.

    The Frack Files

    Fracking for oil and gas has become smoking hot. With new technologies developed in the late 1990s opening the gates, there has been a rush of speculators and fossil fuel corporations leading politicians by the nose in a new race to burn yet more carbon.

    Politicians may dream of energy security and the promise of employment generation. Yet for communities affected by fracking the picture is very different - the industrialization of their environment; pollution of water, land and air; the pitting of neighbour against neighbour. It's no wonder that as the fracking boom goes global, there is rising resistance and protest at every proposed site.

    Hooked on Commodities

    The economies of the South were warped by colonialism,. The colony's role was to ship raw materials to the imperial 'centre' - and to provide a market for manufactured exports from the centre. Eduardo Galeano, in his classic Open Veins of Latin America, described this dynamic as 'the endless chain of dependency'.

    Decolonisation didn't help. Corrupt local politicians, profit-driven corporations and a global trading system tilted to favour the rich nations meant that the 'extractive model' of development bypassed the majority.

    This month's New Internationalist examines the world's voracious appetite for raw materials and the explosive growth of mineral exploration around the globe. Commodity prices surged from 2002 to 2012 during the 'commodities super cycle'. But will this boom continue and will it make a difference in a global system stacked against the poor nations?

    We look at commodity dependency from Wast Kalimantan, to Madagascar, to Canada's tar sands and ask what is means for communities whose lands and livelihoods are threatened.

    And we try to answer the most pressing question of all: how can countries control and manage their natural resources for the greater good?
