Sustainable development discourse attempts to manage trade-offs between the triad of the social (poverty and equity), ecological (natural resources), and economic (growth) (Munasinghe 1993). In contrast, ecosocialism discourse sets up a dialogue between social equity and ecological sustainability. In The Return of Nature, leading Marxist scholar on environmental politics John Bellamy Foster traces the deep intellectual roots that have shaped the ecosocialism project. In elegantly outlining the challenge, the author captures an interesting discursive turn, which is that.
