    Thanks David, good talk and fantastic cartoon! I’ve been following you for some years and this talk is the furthest I’ve experienced you push the “limits to growth” concept. And here’s me thinking Malthus and the Club of Rome “limits to growth” ideas are anathema to economists. Or perhaps anathema to economists with hindsight but prescient to economists with foresight!

    Your worldview is now fairly well aligned with Australian Paul Gilding. There will be a series of escalating crises, and this is now unavoidable. The human species is good in crisis, but we must be prepared.

    Come down to Melbourne next time you are down under!
