Remember the Club of Rome and zero growth ideology? Now it turns even worse according to Henderson :
« Somewhere along the way, during the last 50 years, the critique of capitalism changed from condemning its failure to spread the wealth to condemning the very opposite. Suddenly the great sin of capitalism was that it was producing too much, making us all too materialistic, fueling economic growth at the expense of other values, spreading middle-class decadence, and generally causing society to be too caught up in productivity and too focused on the standard of living. »
A bad case of “Damn if they do, damn if they don’t”.
