Economic growth is essential to the well-beling of society as a whole . at present ,growth rate there are still mant poor people in the world ,,only more growth can create the capital needed to improved the quality of life in the world . but too fast economic will produce negative effects on the natural enviroment wile the fast growth has limits and when society reach these limits ,the fast growth no longer continue ,and the qualiy of life will decrease,, and what is u opinion about the problem?

I do not believe that economic growth is essential. If it was then we will all be in trouble soon as the markets are saturated and there is no more growth possible. We have a finite market so growth is finite. What we need is a way to do things differently so we stop the growth and start making life better. If we lived according to need rather than greed there would be enough wealth and resources to keep everyone happy.

Well, that is the accepted dogma; that economic growth is essential to the well being of society... but I disagree. In fact I think it is harmful to the quality of life all the best urban
