Why Capitalism Loves Disasters

Watch the full companion video covering the basics of Ecosocialism here:

In this Our Changing Climate climate change video essay, I look at why disaster capitalism exists and how it works. Specifically, I dive into the core principles behind disaster capitalism– how crises are exploited to pass neoliberal policies, turn a profit, and privatize land and resources previously held in common. But I also dive into how climate change and the climate crisis are a gold mine for disaster capitalism. Not only does capitalism destabilize communities on the frontlines of climate change and climate disasters, but it also capitalizes on the destruction of these natural disasters, further entrenching free-market capitalist ideas and policies. Capitalism is fueling climate change as well as profiting and exploiting the wreckage it leaves in its wake.
