The earth sends us signs, so do animals ! What if we invent an economic model that is closer to our humanist values and the needs of the earth? We could create meaningful jobs and reassure our descendants about the earth's resources and possible positive change. I wrote a article on the link between spontaneity and nature, and if that was the solution: a NEW WAY OF THINKING THE WORLD !
