In this talk ecological economist Brian Davey
, member of Feasta, demonstrated how many problems can be traced back to the mismanagement of common resources and argue for a new politics for the commons. What can be done given that rentier interests are so influential behind the scenes in the political system?
Can we find a new form of management, propertising without privatising, and managing the commons in the interests of all?
