The argument advanced by Terry L. Anderson of the Hoover Instituion at Stanford University regarding SD is quite in line with that of other capitalist expansionists. His main contention in the article he publishes here is to suggest that natural resources are expanding due to advances in technology, even as life-expectancies and consumption increase. Albeit the article is short, Anderson offers little in the way of statistical fact to bolster his claims. As in my previous entry’s author, he feels that economic expansion in the 3rd world will somehow result in empathy towards the first world’s emerging commitment to SD. He fails to realize that as the economy of these nations expand, so to will the desire to consume. The failure to address this issue severly undermines the argument made by Anderson.
