Checking Our Premise

ZOOM’D host John Schmidt continues to fly solo with a passionate examination of the fundamental premise and driver behind the economy: growth. This show serves as the fourth leg of exploration into our financial and economic system in motion and the limits to growth we now face. Primary factors that are barriers to long-term growth include the depletion of important resources, the proliferation of environmental impact from extraction and use of resources, and financial disruptions—aggravated by the inability of existing monetary, banking, and investment systems to adjust to resource scarcity and soaring environmental costs. Join John as he explores end-of-growth realities and the central assertion of the post-carbon perspective—that “economic growth as we know it is over and done with … from now on the general trend line of the economy will be level or downward rather than upward.”
