What distinguishes good growth from bad growth?
Good growth stops and turns into a maturing process. This is what all natural things do. We grow until we become adults, as do all animals. Trees grow until they reach a certain height. Then they concentrate on improving their root system and thereby their communication with other forest beings. Cells grow until they reach a limit. When they keep growing we call them cancerous.
By that metric isn’t our economic system and the very idea of permanent economic growth cancerous?
