Here’s a good opinion piece by Bonnie Erbe of Scripps Howard News Service. I couldn’t agree with her more, except regarding the following:
… big business plays a role, too, because it wants a continuing stream of cheap labor and most businesses care little about the impact on our planet’s carrying capacity.
More than cheap labor, it’s more consumers that big business is really interested in. There’s no shortage of cheap labor. They can find that anywhere. But you can’t grow sales volume without growing the number of customers.
But, overall, it’s a great piece. We need to see more of this kind of writing.
