L’altraeconomia: tra mercato e società civile - The degrowth as a way out of economy Degrowth represents first of all a provocative slogan to indicate the necessity to break from the growing society, focussed on an economy aiming at the growth for the growth’s sake. In the essay, the author theorizes that breaking with the society of growth does not imply promoting an "alternative" growth, nor an "alternative" economy, but rather overcoming the excessive power of economy in order to rediscover the social and the political dimension. The question regards two interconnected levels: the one of representations and the one of concrete realities. The break represented by degrowth concerns at the same time things and words, it implies a "decolonization" of the imagination and the actualization of another possible world.
