Maybe we should ask Julian Simon to become part of this discussion.

Leech has hit the nail on the head.  Because our economic systems are
geared to growth (a simple product of history), our political leaders
feel constrained to develop statutes consistent with growth.  The only
way to get things to slow down is to make the transition from a society
geared to growth to one geared to relatively uniform levels of
consumption of goods and services.  Of course, most won't want to do this
because it means that there won't be opportunities for _excessive_ wealth
for the owners of the producing corporations.
