Sustainable Development

The Age of Entitlement is over. Now it is time for the Age of Regulation | Madeleine Bunting | Comment is free | The Guardian is perfectly possible to imagine a way of life with less material wealth that could actually be far more sustaining of human well-being. The problem is that we need politicians brave and bold enough to start taking us down that long road...

There was I reading a perfectly good Guardian when suddenly somebody wrote something clarifyingly true.

Those who really want to understand that it is simply impossible to continue expanding what we now define as "wealth" are advised to read Jared Diamond's book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Survive.
