Written by Naomi Klein

The recent spate of disasters has translated into such spectacular profits that many people around the world have come to the same conclusion:  the rich and powerful must be deliberately causing the catastrophes so that they can exploit they....The truth is at once less sinister and more dangerous.  An economic system that requires constant growth, while bucking almost all serious attempts at environmental regulation, generates a steady stream of disasters all on its own, whether military, ecological or financial.

Naomi Klein, cited by James Gustav Speth in America the Possible, p.91.
