The Growth Imperative

Individual:
I have to increase my income year by year or the inflation will get me

Corporation:
I have to increase shareholder value quarter to quarter or they will pull out their investments

Government:
I have to show a growth in GDP or people will not vote for us again

We're all like hamsters running on wheels whether we like it or not to satisfy an invisible growth imperative which is centuries old and nobody knows why we're still following.

It's called tradition ...no one knows why, but it was always that way, since they can think.
