An interesting look at the ways in which growth is looked upon in the modern western society as being the end goal for everyone. He asks the question if this is good and whether or not we're doing the right thing here. There are tiems when it did feel like he was exhaggerating for the sake of it but a lot of the time I found myself nodding in agreement. However between the crazy growth and his ideas there may be a workable middle ground. ( )
