However, if short-term growth in GDP is going to continue to be the aim of our governments, then it seems likely that environmental aims like this will continue to be too easily sacrificed. I think that humanity needs a more sustainable economy. I encourage everyone to look at the CASSE site at http://steadystate.org and consider signing the position statement there. And tell friends!
