Long piece about how the Maya al died because the ecology couldn\’t support them…..just one line to note:
Governments are beginning to assign monetary values to natural "assets" such as forests, a conceptual leap that could reinvent economics.
Really? Noting that assets have values is going to revolutionise economics?
I think you\’ll find that assigning such values is commonplace withing economics…..it might change politics as governments wake up to the point but then that\’s true of a great deal of both economics and politics.
