Untangling ecology in The Financial Times
In the City nature has a ghostly presence. From its value as a commodity traded on volatile markets to the organic breakfasts served in the cafes of the Square Mile and Canary Wharf; the earth’s ecology appears everywhere, yet the relationship between activities of the market and the earth’s role in the production of value goes unnoticed.
Now, from rising costs of food caused by an unusually long winter to the potential for a 'carbon bubble', the effects of our ecological environment are becoming hard for the markets to ignore. Each morning of Two Degrees join artist Lewis Bassett,. experts and amateurs for breakfast to digest news from the Financial Times. With contributions from City workers, analysts and activists, each morning we will take the salmon pink pages of the FT as a starting point from which to untangle the web of finance and track the presence of our ecology in a system based on the paradox of infinite growth.
