dove andremo a finire! in Italia non succederebbe mai. :-)

è molto chiaro, penso ben ponderato e non citerò più lo spegnimento del sole come limite,  i problemi ci saranno molto prima, diciamo dopodomani.

però in coda mi imbatto in questo che, a mio personale sentimento, la dice lunga sui grossolani convincimenti in campo economico dell'autore.

I recently was motivated to read a real economics textbook: one written by people who understand and respect physical limitations. The book, called Ecological Economics, by Herman Daly and Joshua Farley, states in its Note to Instructors: …we do not share the view of many of our economics colleagues that growth will solve the economic problem, that narrow self-interest is the only dependable human motive, that technology will always find a substitute for any depleted resource, that the market can efficiently allocate all types of goods, that free markets always lead to an equilibrium balancing supply and demand, or that the laws of thermodynamics are irrelevant to economics. This is a book for me!

se si parte da questi presupposti, avremo  grossi guai all'ora di pranzo, non dopodomani.
