The Coming Collapse

An Economy that relies on growth year after year on a finite planet is doomed to fail. Eventually there will be a peak and when resources can no longer maintain growth, or even sustain the status quo the whole thing will go over the cliff.

Damn It

I think of the economy as a great river that has been dammed. On one side, the one percent and on the other side the rest of us. The dam was built to control the flow of wealth, with the one percent monopolizing the river and the reservoir and the rest of us reliant on the trickle that flows downstream from the obstruction that prevents everyone from benefiting from the river’s bounty. Thing is, if you blow up the dam a lot of people will be wiped out because everyone has built their life in its shadow.
