Please note that this extract is taken from a piece written, pre-crisis, in 2006! Was anyone listening then…is anyone listening now?
“Key point: just because everything looks relatively calm on a society’s surface doesn’t mean that everything is fine underneath. Incremental, long-term, and largely invisible shifts in a society’s complexity and interconnectedness, in the quality of the resources it depends on, and in its relations with its natural environment can make a society progressively more vulnerable to sudden, sharp, and enormously disruptive bursts of change.”
