What's a viable alternative to economic growth?
Would it therefore not be better to turn the tables and refuse to work longer and earn more, simply demand more time for ourselves, and thereby send prices and working times plummeting?
All we would need to do is sit it out until prices go down due to lack of demand. And yes, that might be called a recession, but where does the straining end? Humans need to sleep. And there are only 24 hours in a day. Eternal, exponential growth, I've always thought, is simply a mathematical impossibility - or not?
Wouldn't it be wise of us to slow down before we crash? What are your views? Can this be done?
