I-House Debate: Ecology vs. Economy
The first commandment of Economics is to grow and grow forever. Companies must get bigger. National economies need to swell by a certain percent each year. People should want more, make more, earn more, spend more. The first commandment of the Earth is that there is only so much and when that is gone, there is no more: use, but use carefully with conversation and renwability in mind.
