Some preventative measures are worth it. Some aren't.

It's a mistake to think that there is this giant machine called "Prevention" that we can dump money in and get more money out.

Most of the preventive measures that are worth it are already being done, as part of public health policy. Think iodized salt, fortified milk, fluoridated water.

The comments seem to be talking all around the question but not addressing the heart of the entreprenurial debate. The issue should be: How to get state capital around the financial logjam and into the hands of the entrepreneur.

Unfortunately, mathematical laws make extended growth impossible, regardless of the 'greenness' of the growth.
