Controlling economic growth
Synonyms: Planning economic growth
Description: Managing or re-inflating the economy through increased printing of money; and through manipulating interest rates, military spending, tariffs, taxes, investment credit, and rules of competition, etc, toward the end of sustained growth.
Claim: Economies cannot expand without exceeding the physical limits nature sets. Increasing affluence is a principal cause of environmental degradation. What is called for is economic retrenchment and retraction -- a small economy for a small earth.
Counter Claim: At this point in time there is no economic model available that has been in use long enough to guarantee sustained growth.
