GROWTH IS A DIRTY WORD:

February 4, 2018

Not your growing up variety but economic growth. Wherever growth is mentioned in the media it’s almost invariably depicted as a good thing. But is it? It is certainly a good thing for bankers, companies and business people but not so for the man in the street (or woman!) or for families, their children or their grandchildren. Growth means more factories, more pollution, less green fields, less wild animals and more greenhouse gasses. The sensitive issue of a growing world population needs to be tackled to restore the balance between humans and nature.
