We Need to Think Thousands of Years Ahead
How can we think 100 years ahead, and is that enough? Well, it’s not enough, but it’s a fantastic start. I think that to trust the future of the Earth to economists, after what we’ve seen over the last few years is total insanity. And economists who teach us to discount the future don’t see anything but money. They see nothing but money.
The important thing is to look at your children. I can’t tell you how many people spend huge amounts of time looking for the best preschool for their child, and they don’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.
