Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability: Conversation with James Gustave Speth, Dean of the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University; by Harry Kreisler, April 2, 2008.

This interview is part of the Institute's "Conversations with History" series, and uses Internet technology to share with the public Berkeley's distinction as a global forum for ideas.

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Yale Professor James Gustave Speth for a discussion of his career in the environmental movement. Professor Speth traces his changing perspective on the appropriate response to the environmental crisis. Concluding that only a radical transformation of capitalism will save the planet for future generations, he outlines the changes in consciousness and in the political agenda that will be required.
