Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here's a still-relevant quote by ThatBritGuy in 'Socratic Economics I: Why GDP growth above everything else?'
Yes, but 'productive capital' is a complete fiction. Capital doesn't exist as a physical thing. It only exists if people choose to believe in it.

Natural resources certainly exist, and the destruction of natural resources has an obvious real-world effect.

So why do economists apparently prefer to deal with fictions than realities?
