On development

At any rate, both the crisis of justice and the crisis of nature necessitate looking for forms of prosperity that would not require permanent growth, for the problem of poverty lies not in poverty but in wealth. And equally, the problem of nature lies not in nature but in overdevelopment. It is likely that Aristotle was well aware of these interconnections as he wrote the following: ‘The greatest crimes are committed not for the sake of necessities, but for the sake of superfluities. Men do not become tyrants in order to avoid exposure to the cold’
(Wolfgang Sachs, Planet Dialectics, Zedbooks 1999, p 89)
