I recently read a book about Degrowth and how Capitalism is destroying our planet and is not helping with our standard of living (among other things). However, the attributes of Degrowth sound a lot like (Eco)Socialism.

Both Ideologies want to remove capitalism and replace it with a social and sustainable market which concentrates on the well being of the people. Everywhere I looked online, it didn’t directly compare the two and only talked about how the two factions should band together in the fight against Capitalism for the Planet. Honestly, Degrowth just sounds like a specfic flavor of (Eco)Socialism to me. But then why not just call it Ecosocialism instead of Degrowth?

So what exactly is the difference between the two if there even is one? And what are your overall thoughts on this topic?
