Some of things it points out:

  • The population can’t stop growing under capitalism. Capitalism is based on endless growth. A capitalist society is always in search of new markets for its goods requiring a continual expansion of the labor force and of the relative surplus population of the unemployed in order to meet the needs of production and profits.
  • The economy can’t stop growing under capitalism.
  • Capitalism can’t plan ahead.
  • Capitalism is not human nature
  • Environmental degradation disproportionately hurts the poor.
  • The Jevon’s paradox: sustainability isn’t sustainable. As anybody with a hybrid vehicle understands, why wouldn’t you drive 100 miles for no reason? The gas is practically free!
