At some indeterminate future our politicians, economists, assorted strategists and public figures will come to the conclusion that the most sensible solution to negotiating the growing global tide of refugees will be to invest in and negotiate solutions in the source problems of the countries and regions migration is being generated from. An admission must eventually have to be made that the cost of reactive policing over the longer term eventually surpasses and ultimately engulfs the costs of seeking to address the actual complex causes and reasons for all of this migration. It seems that the World is not currently configured in such a way as to allow the creative solutions, innovation and insight it desperately needs, so it keeps generating the kinds of simple problems it can at the very least understand.

A clear and present burden of political and commercial “short-term-ism” is that it constantly displaces (its own) costs to the future.
