"Ain't got no home, ain't got no shoes" Uk in recession as economy slides hmm, bummer man, bummer... Anyone feeling the pinch? My view is that we need to reorganise our economy on an environmentally stable model, economic growth should not be an end in itself if it is fuelled by needless and wasteful consumerism. Of course we need to be able to earn a living, and I feel very sorry for those who will suffer by losing their jobs and their homes, but so much of what we produce is, to quote Neil Young, "A Piece Of Crap". And then there's all those billions that countries spend on "Defence" (aka Attack) budgets. So, just wondering if a) people are being affected personally b) where do we go from here?
