“An economy predicated on the perpetual expansion of debt-driven materialistic consumption is unsustainable ecologically, problematic socially and unstable economically. Changing this requires the development of a new marco-economics for sustainability: an economic engine that doesn’t rely for its stability on relentless consumption growth and expanding material throughput. Building that new framework is an urgent priority.”

The above excerpt is from “Prosperity without Growth: Economics for a Finite Planet” by Tim Jackson

We have to change from an every man for himself economy to a highest good of all economy one based on sharing resources as opposed to perpetual growth. This is what an evolving conscious species would do .

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
