Why am I showing you this? Mostly because its rather striking, partly because it forms part of the things Piketty got wrong thread, but mostly for the relevance to the “infinite growth on a finite planet” type argument. Many people will tell you that infinite “growth” on a finite planet is impossible, though they will usually be a touch vague about the meaning of the word “growth” (see Economics and Climatology? comments). Others will tell you that “economic growth” isn’t necessarily resource constrained, and so infinite growth is perfectly possible.
