Jeremy Grantham is a fascinating dude. He is a highly successful capitalist who blames capitalism for killing the planet. If you’re familiar with this “connoisseur of [market] bubbles,” as the New York Times referred to him in a profile, it’s probably due to his increasingly Malthusian outlook.

He declared that we “now live in a different, more constrained, world in which prices of raw materials will rise and shortages will be common.” This resource depletion (peak everything!), combined with global warming, poses an existential threat to civilization, Grantham argues.
