Even if HS2 contributes to gdp growth greed is not good

11 January, 2018

• THERESA Mabey and Jeremy Corvid (A question of growth, January 4) should realise that governments have to balance economic prosperity with the protection of individuals’ rights to a peaceful life, free from unnecessary uncertainty and upheaval, in the same way that individuals seek to maintain a work-life balance.

Whether HS2 will contribute to gross domestic product growth or not is still unknown; even if it does, is the growth worth the destruction of so many lives? Greed is definitely not good.
