Economic Growth is Not Progress

The absurd god of infinite economic growth has to be renounced.
Another tranche of scientists provide evidence that consumerism is madness. That makes a long list including the environmentalists, the chaos mathematicians and economics Nobel Prizewinners.
What more do the politicians need? Except maybe a good kicking in the polls.
 Alongside this anti-growth heresy, there is another theory that the electronic economy is working towards a reversal of the old corporate/consumer power relationship, not to be confused with old style 'consumer power'. The general idea being that the growing ability to create micro-economic systems can undermine the C20th dinosaurs and make them the servants. After all, we seem to actually own many of them already.
