  1. 1. Land Matters. Agrofuels, Unequal Exchange, and Appropriation of Ecological Space

    University dissertation from Human Ecology Division, Lund University

    Author : Kenneth Hermele; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Land; Agrofuels; Ecologically unequal exchange; Environmental load displacement; Land grabbing; Malthus; Brazil; Ethanol; Resource wars; Land Use change; Indirect land use change;

    Abstract : As a global society we are entering an era where land areas and land-based resources are coming to the fore once again for capital accumulation and economic growth, for the first time since the end of the 18th century when Malthus forecasted a contradiction between population growth and agricultural output. That constraint on economic growth, imposed by limited land areas, was overcome by the combination of fossil fuels (coal, oil) and appropriation of space overseas (colonialism, trade). READ MORE
