A planned collapse?

An unplanned collapse – ‘This future sees events moving out of our grasp.’


A planned collapse or descent – ‘This is a steep winding-down of the size of the industrial economy. It strips away its burdens and complications, nurses the human ecology back to health, builds local competence and discovers a sense of place… The descent itself is inevitable, as is the breakage that follows, and yet, this is managed descent, in contrast with descent that forces itself on an economy blindly straining for growth. The shock is as gentle and as survivable as foresight can make it.’
