La idea central de la economía ecológica es que la actividad económica humana está acotada por límites absolutos. Sin embargo, estos límites no son completamente fijos, ya que están codeterminados por: (1) «límites planetarios» (fijos) (Rockström et al. 2009) y (2) factores sociales (dinámicos), como valores, instituciones, etc. La economía se concibe como un subsistema integrado en los sistemas más amplios de la sociedad y la biosfera.

For many social critics "globalization" is a signpost of “late-capitalism” with the rise of multinational corporations, mass consumption and the multidirectional flows of capital, labor, media, communication, ideologies and social movements across national borders. Feminist analyses of globalization and the gendered and sexualized permutations of these phenomena offer a critical stance for theorizing these processes, and for studying their complex articulations across time and space.
