CREATIVE DESTRUCTION AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY. THE CONCOURSE AND THE ATTITUDE OF PHD SCHOLARS

  • Sándor Kerekes

Abstract

The circular economy strategy is closely linked to the EU's efforts to achieve a
radical reduction in the amount of waste going to landfills. It is wrong to think,
that packaging waste should be used within the packaging industry, as many
have suggested in the strict sense of producer responsibility. Schumpeter saw
creative destruction as one of the preconditions for development. The circular
economy should be offensive. The economy must be transformed from a stock
economy to a flow economy to achieve significant improvements in
productivity and material efficiency. The public discourse on the state of the
environment is very diverse. I would like to show, through a short empirical
study with the help of Q methodology, how PhD students have very different
views on issues related to sustainable development and the circular economy.
KEYWORDS: circular economy, Hungarian waste management policy,
disruptive innovation
