  • [Looking to the future] "The resulting society might still be called a capitalist one; it would significantly differ from current capitalism, but not resemble past socialist economies. Rather than categorizing it as one or the other, or than deriving new ‘-isms’, the discussion should focus on the practical means to pursue the sustainable transformation of our societies and economies." (p. 101)

  • "The ability of neoclassical economics to survive in the political arena despite its flaws and the economic disasters caused by relying on it is not due to its predictive capabilities or mathematical rigour, but rather due to its function as legitimation science – power supports the science legitimising power. The capitalist accumulation regime and its inherent growth tendency, along with the limited ability to distribute the wealth created are legitimised by a world view explaining that this is as the world must be. Alternatives are declared to be rather unthinkable (illusionary, day dreams, unrealistic, castles in the air etc. are terms used to discredit suggestions for change)." (p. 142)
