Martin Crawford asked the question about food forests and economics:
“Do we design food forests to fit in to the existing economic model, which is deeply flawed? Or design them for maximum ecological resilience and assume the economic model will change in time?”
What is the alternative economic model? What are the flaws in the existing model, how can we design an economic system that allows us to design food forests for maximum ecological resilience?
So, my crux question is:
What is the alternative to the flawed existing economic model that will enable maximum ecological resilience?
