But then I have so far just read the preface of Natural Capitalism by Paul Hawkin, Amory Lovins, and L. Hunter Lovins.
Bastiat Free University's view of a Netcohort society may be wrong, we are guessing about the future. With the Natural Capitalism crew we agree that the old industrial age is over. We also agree that "small is profitable" is a fine slogan as we emerge into a new age. I may find other areas we agree as I read through their online book.
A different view may sharpen or change our view, we always have a great deal to learn.
Natural Capitalism may also afford a transition tool for industrial age institutions to attempt morphing into a form more compatible with the future.
Thirty years from now we expect the world will be a significantly different place. To be aware, watching, and acting as those changes occur may increase safety, and perhaps bring profitability.
