Economists Question Future Sustainability

Hi folks

Thought you might find this article interesting: certainly food for thought...

"Let’s today step out of the normal boundaries of analysis of our economic crisis and ask a radical question: What if the crisis of 2008 represents something much more fundamental than a deep recession? What if it’s telling us that the whole growth model we created over the last 50 years is simply unsustainable economically and ecologically and that 2008 was when we hit the wall — when Mother Nature and the market both said: “No more.”"

Friedman is about as mainstream a commentator as one can get - he passionately defends corporate globalization -- so it's good to see that even he is starting to pick up on some of our ideas. This article was published in the New York Times, and raises some interesting questions about how we live and whether it is truly sustainable.
