Politicians all over the world can celebrate as of yesterday and feel very delighted with their absolute lack of responsibility. For yesterday 27th of September was this years "Earth overshoot day" - the day upon which the world exhausted the resources that our world's nature can produce in one year. So yes, apart from financial debts, we also have some ecological debts and every year we have to dig into our piggy bank just a little more.
There seems to be but one conclusion: politicians and policymakers are in fact not any bit smarter than people who constantly live on credit, never save and always spend because they naively think that next month they'll have some more. Or even if they are a bit smarter, they are at least just as irresponsible.
