Sustainable Economics. And Safe Fish.

Having written for the mothership Whole Life Times about mercury amalgams in dental fillings and The Dalai Lama , our Blue Planeteer (surprised? We were, too!) was curious to see what the Los Angeles’ Whole Life Times edition was up to these daze.

John de Graaf, co-producer of the popular PBS special, Affluenza, and co-author of Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic, has an especially interesting article in September’s Whole Life Times. De Graaf discusses facets of US life and how they compare with our European friends.  He makes us interested in positive change, including our addictions to work and our tricky healthcare systems.

Also, in the same issue, was printed a wallet-sized, safe seafood guide from the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  Knowing something about the way the food chain can magnify what we eat, I’d love it if you’d print it and use it.

  1. I was interested to find this blog. 20 years ago I had a book published on different economic concepts to point the way to a sustainable world economy. Someone who liked the book contacted me this year to suggest that I update and re-publish it as a blog. She set up the blog, and the book is now complete on the blog in a series of postings. There are now also additional pieces on global warming and other subjects. Here is the link:
