Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
oops i meant that as a reply to the comment about more time for music and mathematics!

i think that if we went for a steady-state economy, we actually would have growth, but it would be growth in quality of life for many, not the tiny minority, and based on impeccable respect for living systems and energy elegance, reverence for the law of balance, and desire for the worlds of engineering and aesthetics to make ever more comples fusions.

money would then be just another energy stream, not a mass-fetish, passe-partout holy grail.
