Economic solutions

Just how deeply will the Economic crisis shake our people's faith in market fundamentalism?
Philosophers would wisely say that the West's love affair with the market mechanism for success is very fickle. Ellul would say "while it's working,  or percieved to be working " it will be favoured . But a society whose first love is not eco, but technology,  will throw out what doesn't work, or is perceived not to work ".
Maybe some political groups  will latch onto  the idea of investing in a sustainable view - its better value and more stable because it is not as fickle as the market.

The trouble is that politicains and wannabes seem to want to adopt trading as some sort of perfect model
