Maintaining growth in the development of the economy is
destroying the planet,
because this practise incites consumers in the free
market economy to have as only goal when they spend their money: to consume
that the pursuit of growth in development leads to the destruction of the
planet is in direct correlation with the reality that the goal with which the
consumer spends his money determines the sense of development.
interaction became clear when it was demonstrated that consumers could pursue
another goal, namely to maintain the integrity of Nature.
will immediately become the sense of development of the economy, because
producers will pursue it in order to satisfy the demand of consumers.
economic principle, according to which the economy is kept going, will
then automatically also become: maintaining
the integrity of Nature.
this goal, consumers must buy only products that keep Nature in perfect
condition and account for the percentage of their costs of living which
maintains this state of Nature.
In order to
exhort the consumer to adopt this behaviour, the law must enable him to deduct
from his taxable income all the money he spends on environmentally respectful goods
will then use the natural resources more efficiently.
when an optimum efficiency will have been achieved in the free market economy,
enough goods and services will be supplied, so that poverty will be abolished
and mankind will share compatible levels of well being.
share satisfaction also live in peace. War, destruction and terrorism will,
at last belong to history.
The macro-economic practise of maintaining
growth in development should therefore be stopped!
Lawmakers can and must do it!
They are responsible for future generations!
We cannot keep continuing to consume more of
the dwindling natural resources, by means of all industrial might, just to
satisfy our demand!
