Economy and ecology

And another great article from George Monbiot, that thoughtful environmentalist, drawing parallels between the unsustainable financial system and the unsustainable way we exploit our ecology.

Monbiot says:

"Ecology and economy are both derived from the Greek word oikos - a house or dwelling. Our survival depends upon the rational management of this home: the space in which life can be sustained. The rules are the same in both cases. If you extract resources at a rate beyond the level of replenishment, your stock will collapse."
