We also play the final part of our discussion with designer and anthropologist Michael Palmyre, who is a part of the design initiative How Might We Do Good. This section of the discussion covers science, social media, the limitations of “green” capitalism, and individual versus structural solutions to inequality. This discussion is elaborating on points from Mike’s talk ‘Are We Using Design to Make the World a Less Valuable Place?’ which we played on episode 196 and also discussed further on episode 197.

Nick is joined by guest host sociologist Dr Caleb Goods, author of the book Greening Auto Jobs: A Critical Analysis of the Green Job Solution, for this entire episode. We discuss what “green” capitalism is, critiques of green capitalism – focusing on the incompatibility of growth and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact generally (this graph, displayed below, shows this really well).
