[European Union] Surviving Democracy : Mitigating Climate Change In A Neoliberalized World Surviving Democracy : Mitigating Climate Change In A Neoliberalized World

      Is democracy, in its neoliberalized form, responsible in part for bringing us to the brink of self-destruction and the policy inertia that is doing away with our chances of survival? Surviving Democracy probes the way that democracy became neoliberalized and the role neoliberalized democracy plays in our dealings with―causing, understanding, denying, and hopefully, mitigating―climate change.

      Defining neoliberalism as the art of exclusion through inclusion, Chien-Yi Lu treats climate change as collateral damage of the neoliberal order established to ensure upward power and wealth redistribution. High-lighting the role money played in the "free" competition of ideas between John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek, she investigates the resulting global structure, wherein the wealthy and powerful sit above the market and democracy, and the way this structure fundamentally contradicts honest climate mitigation. Central to the structure is neoliberal elites’ leveraging of the fluid relationship between the market and the state.Merging citizen power with consumer and investor powers is therefore imperative to the success of climate action. While expediting the bursting of the carbon bubble is an obvious answer, it is the discussion of the meat bubble that brings the book full circle, linking our survival to neoliberalism, inclusion, and democracy. (2020-10-13 歐美所副研究員盧倩儀小姐)
