An explanation would be nice

Please, be very welcome my very personal laboratory, in which I plan to pour my thoughts about something that’s been running through my mind for quite a long time now. Not a long time ago, whilst I was discussing this matters with some aquintances, I needed to quickly set a convincing yet precise name for it, in order to avoid making the wrong impression on them. Capitalismo eco-social (I first named it in Spanish), or Eco-Social Capitalism, English version (hence the very name of this blog).

I consider a straight-forward explanation to be pointless, even counter-productive for a variety of reasons:

first, and probably the most imporant, I still don’t have a clear vision of where I sense this journey would take us;

second, if I just wrote a post with everything I’ve got in mind, what would be the fun in writing a blog?

and third, in an article many things can be said, but through the way a blog works, every idea that dares to cross in our path can be explored in-depth.

However, with the sole purpose of avoid losing my potential readers, I’ll give you somewhat of an advance.

Recent -and not so recent- History has shown us that capitalism neither in the original Adam Smith’s layout nor in the one of modern neo-capitalism works, at least not completely. I see no point in wasting time or space here to enlist all the flaws, extensively treated by renowned authors [way too much wing-sided, but Carlos Taibo’s En defensa del decrecimiento is a nice work to read]; as for the goal of this post, common knowledge about the matter will suffice. Despite all the previous , I still can see the brilliance of the system.

So, how is my idea of capitalism any different from the current statu quo machine? Because I have really serious concerns about two more subjects apart from pure economical greed: social issues (please do not get confused with socialism) and ecology (no, I don’t wear 10-inch-long beard, big round glasses or flared jeans, and no, I’m not hippy).

The point is, how these three blend together? That’s exactly what I mean to find out…

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, but I by no means
    discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful
    worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the
    internet might be much more useful than ever before.

    1. Thank you very much, Jimmy! I couldn’t say how glad I am that you liked it, for that’s the purpose of this whole thing.
      Nevertheless, you may have noticed that I have no visitors yet. The reason being that I still haven’t moved it around, as I still don’t consider the blog to be ready to show! However, your words encourage me to keep writing, and I’m thankful for that.

      Cheers mate
