    There's currently no room for this discussion at the national level; growth is a holy grail and any other discussion would be dismissed without due consideration.

    I've been reading Heinberg's latest (The End of Growth) and he makes a convincing case that growth isn't coming back, as we're hitting resource constraints on oil and some other crucial commodities as well.

    It's worth paying closer attention to the Transition movement, as relocalizing is going to be the only answer in not too many years.

    Very nice summary, barath.

    “Better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.” -- FDR, 1936
