A few weeks ago, after reading ‘English Pastoral’ by James Rebanks, I commented that   Today the language of organisations, and of economics, is increasingly naturalistic… I then asked: But does this thinking penetrate our decision-making? Two recent controversies have suggested that it doesn’t. The first is the one about the horrifying amounts of raw sewage being dumped into the UK’s rivers.

This problem has crept up over years and will take years to rectify. Read the rest here.
