Last night I was watching the BBC channel, some show about the global economy. A man who was obviously some British economic expert solemnly stated that the Chinese middle class have to start consuming more to make up for the Americans who aren't buying.And he was serious.The economic growth forever guys have no thought for the finite amount of product that this planet can produce. Let alone where do we dispose of it all once it's broken or out of fashion. To them it's all about the dollars, bottom line, GDP must go up.A billion Chinese using the earth's resources at the same rate as Americans is short term thinking at it's worst.
