car scrapping schemes
there is, pretty much, a worldwide consensus that we're in a financial mess because of a debt fueled consumption binge.
Many of us (myself included) rushed to buy a load of crap we didn't need - and in the process, hastened the destruction of the very ecosystem on which our lives depend.
The solution from the people who are meant to be in charge?
Encourage people to take on more debt, to replace something that doesn't need to be replaced, and in the process consume more resource the planet doesn't have.
