"Rut och Rot" lessen the need of natural resources for economic growth

Kjell Aleklett writes an Op-Ed in SvD about the correlation between the use of global energy resources and economic growth.

The Government's bid to lower the VAT for restaurants, and through "Rut och Rot" increase the possibility for more to spend on human services is a step in the right right direction for a changed economy where we look after our human capital. In the future other measures will surely be needed. In the long run this is an environmental initiative becuase it mitigates the need of using our limited natural resources for economic growth.
