Consumer society vs circular economy: compatible or mutually exclusive models?
This article analyzes the development of closed-loop economic concepts and the experience with their implementation in various countries of the world. Examining this subject, the author comes to three key conclusions:1) to solve the problems facing humanity, it is necessary to minimize the consumption of resources and extend the useful life of products. 2) to do this, it is necessary to radically change the existing consumption model, change the existing social patterns. 3) it is impossible to solve the mentioned tasks solely on the market principles; the key actors in their solution should be the state and the scientific community.
Keywords: consumer society; circular economy; closed-cycle economy; linear model of economy.For citation: Kodaneva S.I. Consumer society vs circular economy: compatible or mutually exclusive models? // Social novelties and Social sciences. – No 2. – p. 83-99.
