An Australian businessman has offered a $1 million jackpot. Dick Smith has announced the  Wilberforce Award – $1 million to go to a young person under 30 who can impress him by becoming famous through his or her ability to show leadership in communicating an alternative to our population and consumption growth-obsessed economy. He will be looking for candidates whose actions over the next year show that they have what it takes to be among the next generation of leaders our incredible planet so badly needs.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    Anti-growth in the private sector is counter-productive.

    Tell Smith to watch the current administration in the U.S. to see anti-growth in the private sector in action.

    The only thing growing here is government, taxes and debt.

      myturn,

      ...the  Wilberforce Award – $1 million to go to a young person under 30 who can impress him by becoming famous through his or her ability to show leadership in communicating an alternative to our population and consumption growth-obsessed economy....

      That award for doing so sounds a wee bit contradictory, a paradox.

      "A young person from the minimalst movement won the Wilberforce Award, and $1 million, for showing their leadership in the less-is-more category."

      Huh?

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          Sounds like it.

          Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

          For a lead role in a cage?
