A sustainable economy need not be defined by limits, but by opportunity. The nature of consumption will change, but will not be reduced. All wastes will need to be reused. All energy will need to be renewable. The way we live will change, but it may well be better.

Today we live in a world of versions and releases and patches and fixes - we have been socialized to accept product failure as the price of entry into great things, and we dutifully plod on waiting for the next release, hoping that they will fix whatever it is that isn't working.
