"Only after the last tree has been cut down…the last river has been poisoned…the last fish caught, only then will you find that money cannot be eaten." Cree Indian Prophesy
The modern market economy will likely be the demise of us all. As an example, it certainly has been the driving force in the collapse of fish stocks all over the world. Just imagine thousands of factory trawler and processing ships scooping everything up in their wakes, running 24-7 for decades now and you get the idea. Plus there are the traditional and small scale fishermen, and poachers, too. Sustainability? What's that? People want sushi and fish sticks and shark fin soup and farmed salmon gotta eat fish meal, you know. We are quite insane, and we will be very hungry when there's only money left to be eaten.
