A Market Abolitionist Argues for Cap-&-Trade

program date: 
Mon, 07/25/2011

Bill and Robin Hahnel start by talking about why he opposes markets when central to economic systems, advocating participatory economic planning, even in the case of so-called market-socialism, which Bill succinctly c competetively extracting profits to work. Robin points out that markets reward people for working against one another (he calls it anti-solidaristic behavior). However, Robin thinks there's a case to be made for the market approach to addressing global warming known as "cap-and-trade" - capping carbon emissions and then trading the derivatives. One key element is revising the Kyoto protocols to put carbon-emission caps on ALL countries.

The United Supreme Court decision gave corporations a green light to secretly funnel in as much money as they want to elect candidates. The justices in their supreme wisdom have once again privileged corporations over citizens.

The results have been dramatic. Even with a weak economy a record amount of cash has flooded political campaigns.
