We need to change our perception about what an economy is???Lets go back to the drawing board..What is an economy..?To many economists it might not be apparent to them even after all those years of study,that an economy is powered by the enviornment,it is and should be based on what nature can SUSTAINABLY PROVIDE FOR US,NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

We are bleeding the earth dry,the whole concept of wealth also needs to be changed,our enviornment is our only true weath,if we keep disrespecting it,we will have nothing for the future.

We need a resource based economy not a money based one,this is where we are going wrong,the only loyalty these sick meglomaniacs have is to the stockmarket and what makes it tick.

The first water riots appeared in punjab in 2007,86 people got killed in the clashed over water,indians have to dig deeper for water,and there will be food and water shortages as the population grows,(and it shouldnt be growing).

This makes for very bleak reading ,but thank you for posting it up,we all need to be aware of the obscene bloated fat cat culprits.
