Example text

Der planetare Reichtum Seit dem Jahr 1800, dem Beginn der industriellen Revolution in Europa, hat sich die Bevölkerung der Welt versechsfacht, von 1,2 auf fast sieben Milliarden Menschen. In dieser Zeit hat sich das mittlere Pro-Kopf-Einkommen (angepasst an die Kaufkraft) verneunfacht. 2 Nehmen wir eine etwas kürzere Spanne. 1955, das Jahr meiner Geburt. Vergleichen wir eine statistische »Durchschnittsfrau« damals und heute, im vollen Bewusstsein der Beschränktheit dieses Unterfangens. Eine Welt-Frau verfügt seit dieser Zeit über dreimal mehr Einkommen (zweieinhalbmal mehr eigenes Einkommen, der Rest ist Familieneinkommen), hat dreimal mehr Kalorien zur Verfügung und lebt rund ein Drittel länger, als vor einem guten halben Jahrhundert.

Seitdem strebt Schweden enorm schnell nach oben – weit vor anderen Nationen erreichte es einen Massenwohlstand, aus dem kaum jemand ausgeschlossen war. Besonders auffällig ist die Diagonalität der schwedischen Wohlstandskurve in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts: Lebenserwartung und mittleres Einkommen entwickeln sich parallel (eine kleine »Wohlstandsdelle« entsteht in der Wirtschaftkrise zu Beginn der neunziger Jahre). Die Schweden lebten immer schon in einer herausfordernden Natur mit kurzen Ernteperioden.

Rund 5000 indigene Völker und Stammesgesellschaften gibt es heute weltweit, mit rund 300 Millionen Menschen in 76 Staaten. Nur ein kleiner Teil lebt noch in einer echten nomadischen Lebensweise. Dort, wo die Natur kaum etwas hergibt, keine fruchtbaren Böden existieren, die Biodiversität nicht sehr hoch ist, auf abgelegenen Inseln oder Hochebenen, wo keine Rohstoffe gefunden wurden oder wo der Dschungel undurchlässig und lebensfeindlich ist, hat sich erstaunlich zäh eine Lebensweise erhalten, die höchst effektiv nutzt, was die Umwelt an Kalorien hergibt.
