More from less

Song of praise to Tech

Issue 84 - November | December 2019

The Economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Andrew McAfee, casts an optimistic look at the relationship between economic growth and sustainability in his new book. Effective environmental protection needs more technology-driven market economy, not less. This is shown, for example, by developments in the USA, where fewer resources are used year by year as the economy and population grow. The way to the green high-tech market economy must be taken as far as possible worldwide.
