Keywords: Marxist Ecology, Ecology, Marxism
In October 1992, MR founding editor Paul M. Sweezy wrote the following brief letter, published here for the first time, to Mészáros in response to an interview with Chris Arthur and Joseph McCarney that had just been published in Radical Philosophy. Sweezy saluted the critical significance of Mészáros’s argument on “the monstrous power of capital,” and the failure of many Marxists to perceive this problem in its full dimensions. He also affirmed the imperative of incorporating the ecological economics of Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen.
