Rebuilding the U.S. economy

Written by David Orr

I have some suggestions for those assigned to rebuild the U.S. and global economies:

1.  The first is the old idea that we cannot build a durable economy that is so utterly dependent on trivial consumption.

2. I have a second suggestion, which is simply that we should build a slower economy.

3.My third suggestion is to build an economy on ecological realities, not on the belief that we are exempt from the laws of ecology and physics.
