Crises, referendums and impossible questions

Leaders don’t always speak for the people they claim to represent.  Therefore the Greek referendum may be a good idea.

The question is can the financial crisis which is threatening a number of countries around the world be resolved.  One doesn’t want to be defeatist but if we really are using resources at 150 per cent of the sustainable rate, then there is bound to be some serious economic problems.  Is it realistic to think we can beat the odds?

If we can’t beat the odds, should we then be looking at an orderly wind down in the hope we can minimize the human suffering?

Some times there are no answers.
