Ormai entrata nel nostro lessico quotidiano, los angeles parola «decrescita» si carica di significati opposti, qualificando – a seconda delle valutazioni – sia il problema sia los angeles sua soluzione. Il coro degli economisti ufficiali assimila los angeles «decrescita reale» che oggi flagella i paesi sviluppati a un fenomeno congiunturale, destinato prima o poi a risolversi nella ripresa.
Altri invece giudicano quella che attraversiamo una vera e propria crisi di sistema, al pace stesso economica, ecologica, sociale e culturale. Sono gli obiettori di crescita, consistent with i quali los angeles fase espansiva si è irrevocabilmente conclusa e il declino delle società capitalistiche avanzate è un fatto paradossalmente benaugurante.
Mauro Bonaiuti, tra i primi in Italia a muoversi in questa prospettiva avviata da Serge Latouche, riflette sui presupposti della «grande transizione» che ci aspetta: dalla durezza senza sbocco dello sviluppo a tutti i costi, causa di malessere sociale, predazione di risorse e danni ambientali, alla resilienza o «decrescita serena», sinonimo di ritessitura delle relazioni umane in uno spazio di prossimità e in una dimensione di reciprocità.
L’arroganza dei mercati non esaurisce l’orizzonte. Esiste anche un progetto di società di decrescita, e secondo Bonaiuti è l’unico a poterci salvare dal baratro.
