Join the discussion

There is a really interesting discussion going on in the LinkedIn group "Productivity Futures" sparked by a position paper on the website of the World Confederation of Productivity Science written by John Parsons. (There is a link on this page to the group.)

John is suggesting that the paradigm of continuous growth might not be viable for the future .. .but we rely on it (growth) to feed a continually growing population and to increase wealth and well-being.

If we can't continue to grow, many of the models and assumptions we build no longer hold true. John suggests we had better start looking afresh at some tried and trusted ideas and frameworks before we hit crisis point.
