Re: “Don’t Trade Away Our Future” by Quentin Robinson (Dec. 20). Very well said.
The lesson here, is this: steady incremental growth within a given interval is called “exponential growth,” and any scientist worth his or her degree knows that nothing in the universe grows exponentially indefinitely. There is a limit!
Yet economists, business people, corporations and politicians assume that the explosive increase in income, consumer goods and GNP (and inflation) of the past years and decades must be maintained to sustain our quality of life.
Historians know this growth is an aberration, a blip that must inevitably stop and reverse itself.
