Quote – the 19th Eurasian Economic Forum

“On the sidelines of the 19th Eurasian Economic Forum, which was held in Verona, Italy, it was also noted that European countries are very interested in ensuring that logistics corridors through Eurasia are as efficient as possible. However, after the pandemic, it is necessary not to just increase production and restore logistics, the forum participants are sure. The corona crisis showed that it is necessary to reorient the economy to reduce consumption.”

That the first time I have ever heard that view.

It is key.

“The corona crisis showed it is necessary to reorient the economy to reduce consumption”

We have to learn to desire less.
We should not be always aiming for growth. Some growth, in renewables and the reforestation of the Earth but personal consumption of tat should be minimalised.
