Knowledge, Confusion, and Manipulation (Talk, HKW, Berlin)

Land, when turned into property or extractive resources can be sold and bought in the market, and as we know, prices can fluctuate quite significantly. But land is nothing but the environment in which we live and to which we are connected in ways so complex that we are only slowly beginning to understand these connections more fully. When turning nature into a commodity, all these myriad of connections and relations are destroyed, and they become replaced by a single one, the price that can be realized through market transactions. But real estate cannot produce nature, even if a developer plants some trees in a corporate plaza or golf course inside a gated community.
