Incredible article in the Wall Street Journal – probably one of the most important and best ever (even if highly emotive) written in an international newspaper telling the truth about the futility of perpetual growth. Full marks to Rupert Murdoch for allowing this to be printed in his newspaper.
How’s this for a quote:
“Will we change in time? Plan ahead? No, we won’t. Wake up without a collapse. We know the myth of perpetual growth is pure fiction but we also know our leaders, capitalist economists and politicians all live in a collective conscience that must believe this bizarre myth in order to justify everything they believe about the future, about progress, about income and wealth increasing, about a better life”
