Tenet No. 19 (of 40) of A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

“Our present economy is driven by the pursuit of private advantage. The global market sums up billions of decisions made by individuals and businesses in their own self-interest, with little regard for the common good or for ecological consequences.  Therefore, we cannot expect the market place to protect the quality of air and water, the welfare of communities, or the survival of species, including our own.”
