Over- and underconsuming classes

A really thoughtful article by Alexis Ziegler on resource problems, connecting them to the “war of terror”, Obama, the refusal of the global over-consuming class to consume less, resulting in the amount of hunger (the under-consuming class) *growing* globally. If there ever was a failure of capitalism, this certainly must be it.

The terms over-consuming and under-consuming class come from the report Sustainable Futures by Ulvila and Pasanen, discussing in addition to these two classes a third one, the sustainable class, living mostly in countries like Cuba, Columbia, Sri Lanka and Costa Rica.

And yet … “the leader of every nation on Earth other than Bhutan has an expressed intent to continue growing.”
