Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Karen A. Moir – The failure to respect the rights of future generations may undermine the sustainability of development gains made by their parents by allowing for disproven assumptions to prevail and externalized development costs to accumulate. It has long been known that the “trickle down effect” was a flop! Raising income for the majority does not improve – and in some cases may even worsen – the well-being of the most vulnerable. Accelerating development today according to similar patterns may translate to similar results tomorrow, namely, perpetuating and potentially compounding the most chronic inequalities in rights and well-being. The purported failure of Malthus’ theory may be a source for the ongoing overestimation of the potential for technology to improve the future for everyone.
