ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the relevance of the different models of sustainable capitalism in the U.S. In conjunction with this, two contrasting perspectives, the ecosocialism of Joel Kovel and the natural capitalism of Paul Hawken and Amory Lovins, are being analyzed. To this end, ecological sustainability is claimed potential in a market economy as much as natural capitalism, however, it is further believed that the market should go beyond capitalism instead.
