Online resources: Summary: Introduction: Capitalism, crisis and the imagination -- The neoliberal imaginary -- Social imaginaries -- Plotting and planting: Rural regeneration at Tombreck Farm Scotland -- Seed change: Navdanya and the reimagination of reproductive economies -- No justice, no java: Tonatierra and the anti-extractivist commons.Summary: "This book provides an original contribution to contemporary research surrounding the environmental, humanitarian and socio-political crises associated with contemporary capitalism. Reimagining Labour for a Sustainable Future is guided by the assertion that new systems are always preceded by new ideas and that imagination and experimentation are central in this process. Given the vast terrain of capitalism - processes, institutions, and stakeholders - Vogelaar and Dasgupta have selected labour as the point of engagement in the study of capitalist and alternative imaginaries. In order to demonstrate the importance of labour in rethinking and restructuring our world economy, the authors examine three diverse community projects in Scotland, India and the United States. They reveal the nuanced ways in which each community engages in commoning practices that re-center social reproduction and offer more expansive views of labour that challenge the neoliberal capitalist imaginary. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of sustainable economics, labour studies and sustainable development"--PPN: PPN: 1882638158Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-4-NLEBK | BSZ-4-NLEBK-KAUB
