Tabi, Andrea. 2013. "Does pro-environmental behaviour affect carbon emissions?" Energy Policy 63:972-981.

  • "Results of the data analysis show that no significant difference is found between the impacts of environmentally aware and environmentally unaware consumers, i.e. both 'Brown' and 'Supergreen' consumers consume approximately the same amount of energy and produce approximately the same amount of carbon emissions because the motivation-driven activities of 'Supergreens' are offset by structural factors." (p. 972)

Tabor, Nick. 2018. "Why Philanthropy Is Bad for Democracy. Anand Giridharadas, author of Winners Take All, on how well-meaning liberals paved the way for Trump" (interview). New York Magazine 26 August.

  • Giridharadas: "Tending to the public welfare is not an efficiency problem. The work of governing a society is tending to everybody. It’s figuring out universal rules and norms and programs that express the value of the whole and take care of the common welfare. That is an inherently, and rightfully, and beautifully inefficient process. Corporations get more 'juice from the squeeze' because corporations don’t solve very complicated problems. God bless ’em, but making Pepsi or manufacturing a car seat is an easy problem. Governing 350 million people is an extraordinary thing that we have discredited in this age of markets. The right has discredited it head-on, explicitly, intentionally, but the left has passively assented to its discrediting."
  • My note: "passively" as Giridharadas says, but I say in others words that liberals have been unwittingly complicit is supporting the neoliberal assault on democratic processes through the coopting of our culture of democracy by market fundamentalists.
