While necessary, the economic turn seems like a risky strategy. indb 33 13-07-12 7:48 AM 34 The Politics of the Pantry imagine and prioritize the relationships between capitalism, nature, and value. As mentioned above, the problem with the economic turn is that, in an attempt to evaluate nature through conventional means such as gd p and growth, other values tend to be pushed aside. In Figure 1, rather than describing viable and self-contained relationships, I show the value accorded to them as examples of certain discourses and ideological positions.

For now, I want to emphasize the appeal to “realism” and gradualism as it relates to the production of hope and a politics of the possible. ”32 Rhetorically this is a very appealing position. 33 Since the environmental crisis can, as I later argue, signal a fundamental flaw in capitalism and its ability to internalize the crisis in any meaningful way,34 the appeal to reconciliation is crucial for maintaining capitalist hegemony by conflating economics with capitalism. This have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too attitude is precisely why the term “sustainable development” is so popular.

60 The major distinction between ecological modernization and ecological economics is the former’s emphasis on growth versus the emphasis of steady-state economics,61 a difference that is both discursive and material. “Environmental economics” can be seen as an attempt to beat capitalists at their own game, revealing the limitations of treating nature as a resource and garbage dump and of discounting future generations in favour of immediate profits. However, it also illustrates the danger of using economic language.
