“Spiritual Growth! material sustainability.” is my current motto. Unfortunately, there has been far too much emphasis on economic growth, especially for those who have too much from before, and not enough demand for the one product where supply always exceeds demand – spirituality. Since I’ve now passed my 60th birthday, it is probably time to start a blog. My main concerns in life have to do with the survival of this planet. Additional economic growth, will almost certainly place additional pressure on our planet’s ability to survive. Additional spiritual growth, with its focus on God, will lead to a more harmonious life.
One work that examines the problem of unnecessary economic growth is “Prosperity without growth!” Unfortunately, most economists – as well as politicians – have ignored this problem. Their only solution is growth whether it suits or not.
