We Need to Think Thousands of Years Ahead
How can we think 100 years ahead, and is that enough? Well, itâ€™s not enough, but itâ€™s a fantastic start. I think that to trust the future of the Earth to economists, after what weâ€™ve seen over the last few years is total insanity. And economists who teach us to discount the future donâ€™t see anything but money. They see nothing but money.
The important thing is to look at your children. I canâ€™t tell you how many people spend huge amounts of time looking for the best preschool for their child, and they donâ€™t spend five minutes trying to have a better world for the child when that child grows up. We have to be paying attention to what matters.
