The technology to create sustainable futures for all the inhabitants of planet earth are almost all to hand, but the actual future is wholly dependent upon man’s ability to make the right decisions and enact solutions on the right timescale.

A single parameter ($$$) economic system is far too crude an instrument to engineer anything more than one crisis after another!
