Details Despite the many environmental, social, and economic issues being confronted, the main priority remains to simply keep economies growing, at whatever cost. This paper will show this is a floored approach, which many believe is the fundamental cause of the majority of issues and crisis we face today.
Furthermore, unless a radical change happens in how we treat growth, the chances of solving the world’s most persistent and urgent issues in order to realise a more sustainable path of development, will become increasingly impossible.
