Melting glaciers, gullied seas, the financial markets are about to collapse. Spectacular images of how growth continues to be blinding. Outside you can hardly see anything because of the smog and the smoke screen.

The Growth Illusion
13 October 2020 | by hammy-3See all my reviews

Excellent documentary I found browsing through Amazon Prime (ironically enough) about how the belief in the possibility of endless economic growth is destroying the planet featuring interviews with one German, Chinese and Brazilian businessman who is creepier than the last one. It's filled with a thoroughly Germanic but extremely well-warranted pessimism. It's interesting to learn that the notion of economic growth which is central to every government's policy is such a recent concept but terrifying to realise the damage it has done to the Earth in such a small time frame.
