I recently graduated from McMaster University, Canada with a double degree in Political science and Economics. I was born in Indonesia to parents of indian descent. Throughout my university life, i have always had a passion for social justice and human rights issues. I am also part musician, dancer, actor and many other things.
Life and all its diversity in every aspect. From culture to chemistry to technology.
In my opinion our current economic system is not sustainable, because basically we are using a piece of paper (money) to trade for natural resources. The original creation for money was to ease the transaction of bartering, so instead of trying to find someone who wants what you have, you just trade in money and then you use the money to buy something that you want. However this is not sustainable because as the money supply increases, the more natural resources are bought at a faster rate which does not allow these resources to reproduce. An alternative is to change our economic system from a monetary based to a nature base. So instead of trading with money we trade with natural resources. Hence if i want a banana, to compensate for the banana i have to plant something of equal value.
