Video: Who Killed Economic Growth?

Our modern economic-political system is built around the premise of infinte growth, particularly in the United States. More immigrants and more illegal aliens means more consumers - precisely what our commanding corporate interests insist upon. Both political parties implicitly support this growth. However, many point out that we can not grow forever on a finite planet.

In this six minute animated video Addicted to Growth, Richard Heinberg notes that humanity has reached a point where continued physical growth is reaching natural limits. It's worth watching, and the 3D animation is pretty good.

Here's the link to the video on Youtube: .

Heinburg has also published a book on The End of Growth - Adapting to Our New Economic Reality.
