Personal choices
De-clutter your life, downsize your city apartment, carry around a canvas bag, and use a bike, urges Gernot Wagner
in ‘ 
But Will the Planet Notice? How smart economics can save the world 
’ (
Macmillan). The book opens by asking if our personal choices wouldever make a difference to the planet. Conceding that thereis no blocking the full, collective desires of the billions whoare now part of the market economy and the billions morewho want to
 – 
and ought to
 – 
be part of it, the only solution, according to the author, is to guide the all-powerful market forcesin the right direction and create incentives for each of us to make choicesthat work for all of us.He notes that the guideposts we have today for market forces evolved helter-skelter from a historical process that gave almost no weight to the survivalof the planet, largely because the survival of the planet was not at stake.
“Now it is. Since we can’t live without mark
et forces, we need to guide themto help us keep the human adventures going in workable ways, rather than
continue on the present path right off the edge of a cliff.”
