Look at it this way, sometimes less is actually more. We are just entering an era based on conserving energy. Green-technology can and should drive the economy of the future. I think most of us are already learning how to make do with less and that has to be a good thing. The single most important issue is, how do we protect our natural habitat for generations to come? What policies can we create/back to ensure the ultimate preservation as people? In my humble opinion, the status of the economy is neither here nor there. If anything the "poor" economy can be good for the environment of tribal sovereignty, because it forces people to get back to the basics. It forces communities to become more efficient. I mean, this "contraction" is not caused by drought, flood, none of that. This idea of "contraction" is a sign of Industrialism coming to an end...at least, that's what I hope.
