May. 17th, 2008 @ 01:39 am The "Why" of Economics
I would like to pose to you all the question of "why".

Could someone please explain to me in some detail, why it is that we always need 'more', 'greater', 'better' economic growth? Why do we always have to grow? What are we growing into? And in a world with such amazing wealth as today, would we not be better off working on managing our money better, spreading the wealth around, instead of pushing for more growth which only builds wealth for the already-rich?
