The second dimension pertaining to resources is that of time. At its best, the classic welfare state enabled social groups to socialise and ‘pool’ their time in contrast to capitalism's tendency to immobilise and freeze time. To this must be added the problems created by the short-term anthropocentrism which has dominated social and economic systems. The chapter analyses the problems associated with high discount rates and negative externalities Ecotemporal deprivation is defined in terms of the categories introduced in an earlier chapter: quantity, mobility, value, control, sharing and caring. The chapter concludes with another iteration of ecosocial poverty.

Keywords:   time, resources, welfare state, discount rate, negative externalities, deprivation
