Minqi Li: "The Rise of China and the Demise of Capitalism" (May 21, 2009)

...
Presentation by Minqi Li, Asst. Professor of Economics, University of Utah. Given at the Marxist School of Sacramento, May 21, 2009. Taking the subject from his new book, Li tells us that historically the spread and growth of capitalist economies has required low wages, taxation, and environmental costs, as well as a hegemonic nation to prevent international competition from eroding these requirements. With the decline of the economic power of the United States, its current hegemonic role will deteriorate and the unprecedented growth of China will so erode the foundations of capital accumulation-by pushing wages and environmental costs up, for example-that the entire capitalist system will be shaken to its core. Minqi Li is Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Utah.

Minqi Li is economics professor at University of Utah. He shook me awake to the realization that this economic collapse, far worse than anything since 1929, is what life on this planet needs for the survival of complex life-forms. He says that in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently to avoid irreversible climate disaster, "the world economy must contract at a historically rapid clip--at an annual rate of -1 to -3.4 % between now and 2050….

While it is important for China and the US, the two largest CO2 emitters, to walk hand in hand in cooperation, the agreement lacks "all of the above strategies" required to achieve the necessary reductions, says Janet Redman of IPS and Professor Minqi Li of the University of Utah

MINQI LI, ASSOC. PROF. ECONOMICS, UNIVERSITY OF UTAH: Thank you.
PERIES: So if we could start with you, Professor Li, what's in the accord in terms of China's commitments?
LI: Well, my understanding is that in this commitment, which the mainstream media claims to be historic, the U.S. side commits to a reduction of emissions by about 26 percent by 2025 compared to the year 2005.
...
REDMAN: So, as Dr. Li mentioned, there is a commitment by the United States to pledge--where it's pledged to cut its emissions by anywhere from 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
...
But as Dr. Li mentioned, the substance, the content, is actually quite disappointing.
...
PERIES: And, Professor Li, what do you think of the negotiations and discussions that will have to take place between now and the Paris conference on climate change to really come to a more binding and tangible agreement?
LI: Well, I think most scientists would recommend that the world should be committed to a long-term global warming of no more than 2 degrees Celsius compared to the preindustrial time.
...
LI: Well, I think the Chinese government right now is still committed to a strategy to maximize economic growth using whatever energy that is available.
