The thing that pinches me more is to re think again and again, if innovations and development bring us comfort or further problems, and every time I think about this, I remain at the point from where I started. It’s mainly because, innovations and development have equal proportion of positive and negative aspects.
Starting from very common observation, i.e. changing life styles, we see tons of new things. For instance, a site I happen to find through links flood was about innovations in baby gifts. Similarly, from cattle transport to fastest cars, and from simple food to a variety, everything has been changed.
Once, while discussing with an industry expert, I’d come to know that it’s all about creating demand, and so economies grow. On the other hand the evolutions part of Science says, that declining age span, bad health and blah blah is the side effect of this development. But, I think it’s not side effect, it’s half of the effect.
Yes, I remember, a term, “Sustainable Economic Development” was a measure to keep a balance here, but I don’t see any such round!
