Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If the world population grows, then 'production' must grow too. However, there is a difference in growth built on the finance/corporate game, and 'sustainable growth'.

Sustainable growth does not mean a return to agrarianism imo. But it does mean an end to the production of consumer crap and a complete rethink of how we generate (and waste) energy. We also need to examine the complete life cycle costs of everything we produce or provide services for.

As I note in a recent comment, technological innovation as a solution, requires state intervention to coordinate many different disciplines. Only government can provide this coordination, and also the social responsibility context - not only nationally, but globally.

You can't be me, I'm taken
