  • Download La grande transizione. Dal declino alla società della by Mauro Bonaiuti PDF

    By Mauro Bonaiuti

    Ormai entrata nel nostro lessico quotidiano, l. a. parola «decrescita» si carica di significati opposti, qualificando – a seconda delle valutazioni – sia il problema sia los angeles sua soluzione. Il coro degli economisti ufficiali assimila l. a. «decrescita reale» che oggi flagella i paesi sviluppati a un fenomeno congiunturale, destinato prima o poi a risolversi nella ripresa.
    Altri invece giudicano quella che attraversiamo una vera e propria crisi di sistema, al pace stesso economica, ecologica, sociale e culturale. Sono gli obiettori di crescita, in line with i quali l. a. fase espansiva si è irrevocabilmente conclusa e il declino delle società capitalistiche avanzate è un fatto paradossalmente benaugurante.

    Mauro Bonaiuti, tra i primi in Italia a muoversi in questa prospettiva avviata da Serge Latouche, riflette sui presupposti della «grande transizione» che ci aspetta: dalla durezza senza sbocco dello sviluppo a tutti i costi, causa di malessere sociale, predazione di risorse e danni ambientali, alla resilienza o «decrescita serena», sinonimo di ritessitura delle relazioni umane in uno spazio di prossimità e in una dimensione di reciprocità.
    L’arroganza dei mercati non esaurisce l’orizzonte. Esiste anche un progetto di società di decrescita, e secondo Bonaiuti è l’unico a poterci salvare dal baratro.
