In today's free market, consumers always have a (false) choice : freeze to death in a Plutonium Winter or fry to death in a Carbon Summer.
Stagflation versus Stability : our real choice
In fact, as consumers, we do have another (moral) choice.
One, time-tested, approach is endless, if intermittent, economic growth like a boom-or-bust cancer tumor , the stagflation we all have grown up under . (See Plutonium Winter or Carbon Summer for more details on how it has been working out for us.)
The other, totally new, approach seeks the stability of a steady state economy where only happiness is allowed to grow exponentially. (Call it this century's GREAT WORK.)
Ignore the false choice of "Freeze or Fry" .
It is stagflation or stability : morally that is our only choice.....
