It seems that I have been channelling the Archbishop of Canterbury…..
(Or vice versa.) (If you can channel living people.) (I’m sorry, I don’t actually know the channelling rules.)
Williams said the credit crunch had been a “reality check” in a climate of unsustainable greed, and it should be used to provoke a fundamental rethink of the pursuit of wealth. It demonstrated that the country had been “going in the wrong direction” by relying on financial speculation rather than “making things”, he said.
It was “a reminder that what I think some people have called fairy gold is just that – that sooner or later you have to ask: ‘What are we making or what are we assembling or accumulating wealth for?’.” (from the Guardian)
Unsustainable greed, relying on financial speculation instead of making things, not believing in fairy gold. I spout this stuff every day.
When you find yourself agreeing completely with the Archbishop, I suppose it must be Christmas.
