This emphasis on the necessity for constant economic growth to solve all of the world, and Papua New Guinea's problems is really very destructive. This is especially so when it becomes the raison d'etre for a government.

Wouldn't it be better for a government to concentrate on getting decent health care and education to as many people as possible without destroying the environment in the process?

The world doesn't need any more flat screen televisions, smart phones and fast cars.

What it needs is a comfortable life for all of its citizens, whether that is in a thatched house in a village or a high rise apartment in the city.

I would be really interested on Kessy's view on this approach.
