A Post-Consumer, Post-Capitalist Society: Saral Sarkar’s Eco-Socialism or Eco-Capitalism? | real utopias | Scoop.it

This is a review of Saral Sarkar's Eco-socialism or Eco-capitalism couched as a response to the exaggerated promises of the eco-capitalists.  Sarkar has taken on the exaggerated promises of all who would suggest that the world can be turned into a Disneyland of consumer fun, and proposed instead a Spartan world economy where basic needs are met while ecological realities are taken seriously.

An Affluence of Commons - Huffington Post

An Affluence of Commons - Huffington Post | real utopias | Scoop.it

Jeremy Rifkin's new book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, The Collaborative Commons and the Eclipse of Capitalism, offers what might be termed a third vision of the future. He offers neither a Panglossian utopia nor a "doom and gloom" dystopia. Rather, he offers a serious extrapolations to a possible future built around several widely observed trends that have not previously been connected by those who are tracking them. Most of the major themes are mentioned in the title and subtitle: Declining marginal costs approaching zero constitute the latest development in the creative destruction of capitalism. The many different evocations of the commons in our time point to a future characterized by a civil society of nonprofit organization and "collaborative commons."
