Pursuing endless economic growth and preserving a habitable planet is not possible. Endless growth will mean endless recessions of increasing gravity when ecological limits are passed. Consumption-driven economic growth simply cannot provide sustainable and equitable lives for six billion, not to speak about the nine billion people we are estimated to be 35 years from now. The current liberalized monetary economy underperforms for the majority of the world's human population, and it creates more problems than it solves. Our environment is being depleted, there is an increasingly violent international competition for energy and other sources, and most people feel insecure for the future.
If a system does not perform, we should not ask for more of it. We should replace it with something that works better.
