Abstract

The paper asks a basic question Is there any room for more growth on the globalising world that takes into account the budget constraints of ecosystems and the planet's scarce resources Economists tend to be very complacent about sustainability issues on the planet because they have been a problem throughout human history. Yet technological change has always solved these problems. There is an element of truth to that, but there is probably a greater element of falsehood to it now. The element of truth is that, with sufficient science, we are able to make lots of progress in many areas but the element of falsehood is that solving the problems of sustainability will become increasingly difficult.
