Your incredibly optimistic about the capacity of the laissez faire capitalist holy trinity of business people, voluntary organistations and informal care to correct all these problems which I think require regulation and public interest planning (hang about I didnt say by a state or a highly centralised authoritarianism), the question I have is why hasnt the existing mix, which in places like the US or UK is very biased in an unintelligent/unenlightened way towards laissez faire, resolved this? And wouldn't your stateless Capitalism, implying a lack of regulation, lead to accelerated short-termist planning and extinguishing of precious resources even faster?
