Making a non-capitalist green economy in Massachusetts

From “Non-capitalist political ecologies”, special section of the Journal of Political Ecology 21: 127-221

Making the green economy: politics, desire, and economic possibility
Boone W. Shear, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA

“I provide this outline of a ‘strong theory’ of capitalism (Gibson-Graham 2006: 5, 204n8), to provide some context that can help to better explain the conceptual pivot that I want to make away from only detailing and critiquing social reproduction and towards economic possibility and social change. Drawing from Gibson-Graham and Marcel Mauss, I then propose a theoretical framework that can help to illuminate non-capitalism and might point towards revolutionary transformation. In the second section I discuss and compare two, very different political projects undertaken by green economy groups in Massachusetts.”
