ABSTRACT
The world is experiencing a twofold crisis. On the one hand, the global, virtualized economy is collapsing and, in its fall, it is bringing down significant sections of the real economy. On the other hand, the environmental collapse of the planet is also marching on, and there is no clear sign that this may stop soon, for the most commonly discussed paths for economic recovery seem to rely upon further spoliation of the Earth's life support systems. In this book chapter, the reader is to encounter an account of this twofold crisis in light of the deeper axiological grounds that are causing it. To this end, the present author refers extensively to the theory of value developed by Canadian scholar John McMurtry, according to whom: "[F]inancial crises always follow from money-value delinked from real value, which has many names but no understanding of the principle at its deepest levels."
