metaphysics of business part 9: what is a healthy economy? by Elke Siller Macartney

this is an interesting look at the idea of how we define a healthy economy by growth and consumption, and how it’s a lot more like cancer than the definition of health of any other species we find on this planet. rather than using growing and consuming as indicators of economic health, maybe it would be more helpful to look at how we promote well-being in other ways, and consider the balance of those to indicate a healthy economy. nice read!
