Green Party Britain Should Give Up Economic Growth
Caroline Lucas, Leader of the Green Party and their one and only MP has been talking to the Guardian about her leader’s speech and her plan for a
Green pre Agricultural Revolution marxist Britain.
Among the topics discussed are the end of economic growth for Britain:
• Lucas said developed countries like Britain should give up economic growth.
“Advanced industrialised economies like ourselves cannot afford to go on growing, particularly if we want to give people in poorer countries a chance of being able to at least meet their basic needs,” she said. It was a mistake to make growth an economic objective, she added, saying: “Growth is a side issue. The end goal is about prosperity in terms of greater wellbeing, in terms of greater equality, in terms of having a cleaner environment, in terms of having more security for your kids in the future.”
So what happens when a economy stagnates and year by year and inflation eats away at the fixed weath of a nation?
North Korea springs to mind.
But she stressed that giving up growth as a policy goal needed to be accompanied by many other social changes. “If you simply said let’s throw growth out of the window, and didn’t change anything else, then you would see unemployment rise and you would see some chaos ensue,” she said.
No doubt Caroline Lucas’s vision for Britain is North Korea, economically and politically, as Dear Leader Lucas issues Green edicts from Environmental Palace they are carried on horseback to the villages of Britain.
