The article argues that the failure to include the concept of "Degrowth" as
a flaw. It seems to offer only a surface critique of the Jacobin's
excellent issue on the question of development and defense of our ecology.
Perhaps Part II will delve into this a bit more.
Most of the "ecoloigical socialists" (*Kohei Saito*, *John Bellamy Foster*,
etc) argue they don't support "Degrowth" (the extreme, *reactionary*
perspective that we all need to be poorer and not unleash the forces of
production...) but an ecologically friendly steady-state economy.
The question is then poised as to what kind of development. Perhaps the
author in Part II will offer an explanation.
