Green state


Green state

The green state is a proposed economic and political state ideology whose primary policy influence would be the health of the environment. In her book "The Green State: Rethinking Democracy and Sovereignty", Robyn Eckersley describes the relationship between the economy and environment in a green state in the following way:

cquote|On the one hand, the green state would still be dependent on the wealth produced by private capital accumulation, via taxation, its programs and in this sense would still be a capitalist state. On the other, securing private capital accumulation would no longer be the defining feature or primary of the state. The state would be more reflective and market activity would be disciplined, and in some cases curtailed, by social and ecological norms. [cite book
