Shrink the economy save the World

In a world of avarice where the insatiable desire for more cannot be quelled, the only certain future is that we will bring our own demise by destroying everything.

The measure of success of the world purported by the media and financial institutions is growth of the economy.

The measure of success of my world is happiness, health and kindness.

Growth seems to me to be the problem. We cannot keep growing either assets or people with diminishing resources and space. At some point we either have to decide we are at optimum size and maintain or take the decision to shrink. Or accept the inevitable.

Thought for the day.
