Across the globe, the problems inherent in capitalism are becoming ever more apparent, from the dismantling of the welfare state to the threats of climate change. Yet the question of how to replace the current business model of capitalism has always been vexed. This book argues that the time is now, and that we have a model at hand, operating throughout the Global South: social and solidarity economies, economies structured around the sharing of resources, the meeting of social needs, and the building of a sustainable future. Academics from a range of disciplines and a number of European and Latin American countries are brought together here to debate the issues at the heart of this problem, and to raise challenging questions for policy makers and citizens alike.
Review Quotes
David Featherstone, University of Glasgow
"This ambitious and engaging set of dialogues on the dynamics of the social and solidarity economy is both timely and necessary. By bringing together an international set of scholars from Latin America and the United Kingdom, Towards Just and Sustainable Economies develops important and insightful contributions to fostering alternatives to the deleterious consequences of neoliberalism."
