Last week Riverford founder Guy Singh-Watson was presented with an award for responsible capitalism. But is this concept even possible?
To anyone individual, the world truely is an enormous place and it is difficult to imagine anything 'running out' but a resource that would have served the population of the world of Adam Smith 500 years would be chewed through in just 35 years by today's population. And that is to ignore increased rates of consumption.
As Guy says, our economic system rewards the destruction of the land. The key question is, can we re-write the rules of the economy to reward activities that nourish the future rather than those that destroy it?
