Interview with Yves Engler – Cars & Capitalism

May 31, 2011

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to talk with Yves Engler, co-author of the new book Stop Signs: Cars and Capitalism on the road to economic, social and ecological decay.

The author is on a book tour via bus throughout the US and stopped off in Grand Rapids on Sunday to be part of a discussion at The Bloom Collective and the Green Party of West Michigan.

Yves spoke with us about numerous aspects of the book: the association of cars with freedom, cars & advertising, the political power of the auto industry, the health & ecological consequences of auto dependency and numerous examples of how communities are challenging the role of cars in society.
