#361/ Steady State
Great cartoon, right? We have been hearing about how the Earth is coming apart at the seams - and if you haven't been paying attention to that phenomenon, please click the following link, taking you to an article titled, "Cracks could cause key ice shelf holding back 'Doomsday Glacier' to collapse." Given what is happening on our favorite planet (and with all due respect to Elon Musk, I don't mean Mars), it seems pretty clear that economies aimed at more "growth" are a big problem.
I am hoping that you don't really need to be convinced!
If you don't need to be convinced (or even if you do), I recommend that you get on the mailing list of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy. Our political ambitions should be aimed in the opposite direction from the "growth, growth, growth" efforts that propel our current economy.
I am really hoping that you don't need to be convinced!
