Can Capitalism Solve the Climate Crisis?
Lezing / Debat
What if we fundamentally misunderstand the economic principles that are supposed to help us create a better world? On Wednesday 6 March we welcome professor Brett Christophers at Independent School for the City, on the occasion of his powerful new book The Price is Wrong: Why Capitalism Won’t Save the Planet.
At De Dépendance we’ve been a fan of Christophers ever since recording our very first podcast Rentier Capitalism with him back in 2021. In his latest book, Christophers offers an essential intervention in times of climate crisis. What if the problem is not that transitioning to renewables is too expensive, but that saving the planet is not sufficiently profitable? And how do we take back control? Christophers will be joined by Sandra Phlippen, Professor in Sustainable Banking and Chief Economist at ABN AMRO.
