Economics

Penny Wong spoke last night on Q & A about the need to diversify our economy. I’ve a fan of Hazel Henderson’s since the 1980’s along with Paul Hawken’s views (see posts below May 2009) I’ve also long been a fan of Paul Krugman, Nobel prize winner for Economics. (also see previous posts below) Check US unemployment graph below and Krugman’s comments on his blog http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/ if you believe the spin that they are coming out of the ‘crisis’. Krugman introduced us to the concept of a ‘society of moral hazards’ which is an economic term! There are suggestions that the GFC is about to hit another massive brick wall and the pollies are trying desperately to keep a lid on info about that.
