Green Economics 

“Anyone who believes exponential growth can go on forever in a finite world is either a madman or an economist.”    [Kenneth Boulding, economist]

"Somehow, we have come to think the whole purpose of the economy is to grow, yet growth is not a goal or purpose. The pursuit of endless growth is suicidal."  [David Suzuki]
