Kim Tucker 20:37, 29 September 2011 (UTC) Made the following point on a LinkedIn discussion "Economist of the World":
Continued [over]use of the term "economic _growth_" will lead us deeper into an obviously unsustainable situation. A new paradigm is required for policy formulation which focuses on "quality of life" i.e. _all_ life with all of its diversity and evolutionary potential.
"Economic growth" has potential negative effects: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_growth#Negative_effects_of_economic_growth .
A long term more holistic view of sustainability should underpin all discussions on 'economic policy' in cognisance of the fact that the natural environment is the source of all life. This is universal.
