Only politicians can make laws. So only politicians can make this happen.
In the present economy consumers can spend their money with only one goal, to consume more. This goal is sustained by the macro economic policy of maintaining growth in development. It is not possible to consume more of limited resources without eventually depleting them. Mankind has increased its consumption of the limited resources of this planet since commerce began. That is why we have now reached the limits of nature where commerce stagnates. No growth is possible any more. When the law that allows consumers to deduct from their taxable income the money they spend on products that keep nature in perfect condition is adopted, consumers will be motivated by personal and financial interests, two powerful drives in human behaviour, to spend their money in order to maintain ways of living in harmony with nature. Mankind will then walk out of the ecological crises. Producers will have to satisfy the demand from consumers for products for such ways of living. The economy will take off again. The natural resources will be used with an optimum efficiency in the ways of living of billions of consumers. There will then be enough for every body so that no more poverty exists. People who share satisfaction live in peace.
