Abstract

This thesis examines how the balancing of economics, the market, individual participation and the environment is difficult in terms of trying to achieve emancipatory outcomes for all. There is no definite resolution, and none was expected for a topic such as this, as the outcomes are all compromises, but with possibilities for action through a pragmatic political system. Emancipation must be worked for in order to be reached and maintained via this pragmatism, with the hardest outcomes being that for the environment and participation by individuals. What is resolved, though, is that market liberalisation and strict regulation are not equitable solutions for the State to follow.
