How much growth do you need?

Seems as though we need to get bigger!

I hear on the news that last quarter the economy grew by “only 1%”. Politicians and business people are obsessed with it. Many individuals measure their ‘life success’ by it. And it seems like it’s never quite big enough.

What’s wrong with maintaining a steady weight? Suppose the economy balanced, business plateaued and individuals (including shareholders) felt they had enough.

Worth considering some of the negative effects of economic growth.
