Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... it is relentless growth that is no longer possible. Economics growth from pure technological progress clearly remains possible ... however, pure technological progress can not deliver 10% or 3% or 1% growth year after year after year. Pure technological progress, rather, proceeds in waves.

So I strongly disagree regarding a new economic model that does not have growth as one of its normal states.

Regarding seek growth ... that does, of course, depend on the connotation of "seek". Certainly seeking growth as the present system does, like a heroin or tobacco addict seeking their next fix ... that is incompatible with long term sustainability.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
