2173. “More” in economics

More pollution, more population, more co2, more temperature, more debt, more stuff, more racial strife, more inequality of income, more prices on real estate rising faster than income, less topsoil thru more agribusiness, fewer fish in the ocean through more ocean bottom stripping with mile long nets, fewer birds in the sky?

“All our exponential curves lead to catastrophe”

Is there possibly something wrong with the more model?

Can economics intervene or only carry it out through the default assumption of growth as necessary?
