    ridicoulous. Gudynas just itinerates the culturalist ‘critique’ against the ‘north’ by fetishizing otherness. And by the way: it’s not Harveys fault to be cited by the ‘wrong’ persons or for ‘wrong’ purposes (who judges this by the way?)

    JM Alier – my own comment: “El año 2015 es pues el año del triunfo intelectual del post-extractivismo, y los aprendices de Harvey no se han enterado”.
