Economic growth is fuelling climate change – a new book proposes ‘degrowth communism’ as the solution

While this communist plot to push all of us (except the elites mind you) back into abject misery is so ridiculous – it should be laughed at heartily – growth for growth’s sake is indeed a problem. A healthy economy grows. Thats fine as people create value. But many companies have only growth of all kinds in their crosshairs and that is often at the expense of sustainability. This eventually ends in a system that makes every company, every public structure, and every career individual a Ponzi scheme. China published growth rates that no serious observer believed anymore but still we took them at face value. The Soviet Union was once believed to surpass the US because of the growth it showed. Growth is a good thing but it needs substance.
