Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This silly story wanted to highlight two points:

  1. Irrespective of euro-problems, debt, finance, etc... There is still the biophysical economy to take care off. And the biophysical economy is a bit like gravity: you can ignore it, but it is there. To point, I think most discussions (e.g. here) see to have (temporarily) forgotten about it.

  2. Any successful political project will have to take into account less material wealth in the medium-term future. One way or the other.
