Why has it taken so long until climate change and degrowth became topics? In this interview, Martinze-Alier talks about “Debt-ocracy” and the hope that the financial crisis can open up discussions about the real economy. Another topic of the interview is the role of ecological economics, at the university as well as for social movements in general.
