This editorial in The Hill, contributed by 2 researchers from The Northeast-Midwest Inst, combines 2 big, important ideas. 1-We need to prioritize conservation, biodiversity, and sustainability to continue living on this planet, & 2-Private control of central banks imposes an enormous cost burden on most Western countries, which can be mitigated by banks that respond to public needs rather than private profits. The Hill is 7 months behind Ellen Brown with this idea, and her article is clearer and better supported. Of course, they don't credit Ellen, but we are grateful that the idea is gaining gaining credibility.
Even more optimistic: conservation doesn't have to cost anything--energy efficiency and more efficient resource use can turn a profit, if only we stop subsidizing the companies that are raping the landscape. And how much does it cost to stop bombing schools and hospitals?
