Australia and the world is full of them . Suits the determinists to have it simple . No organisations better symbolize this than the rise of the IPA ( defending the gravy train ) and the demise of the Left ( symbolized by Lindsay Tanner's observation that his party lacks soul) . Neither of the moves meets the green movement head on, so are going to fail eventually. The earth will win and all our high speed quick fix ignores the the fact that every railway has an endstop and that the journey is just as important as the product .The earth is kinder to itself than we are to each other. Better we slow down and get nearly everything we get now and More -with less waste . Farmers know how to do this, but are no longer allowed to do this . Farmers can be some of the best modellers of economic activity .
Overall the need for rest and relaxation in economic theory and practice its a no brainer; makes you wonder whether we are using our brains. Don't ask me what i think because i have watched and worked with polys for decades and couldn't begin to tell you how dumb ad reactive they usually are . Which may mean the job is down to us and you in your small corner in particular . I have addressed this issue in some detail in scarcity and abundance -blinkered goal setting by the economic profession .
Have a good day and don't work too hard .
