Capitalism, Inequality and Climate Change: A Clash of Conditions

How ideology and power define both our economic and environmental future


 Join DePaul’s Institute for Nature and Culture as we explore how U.S. capitalism fosters the development of the world in its image.  What is the relationship between capitalism and climate change?  Is capitalism natural and hence unavoidable?  Or are there alternatives?  At this historic time of pressing ecological problems and record inequality the answers to these questions will determine the economic and environmental conditions under which the world’s population will live for generations.
