And as we all know our monetary system is utterly dependent upon infinite GDP growth.

The other question is why are we still talking about GDP as a worthy metric?

“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
