Hi Stefan:

I think there are 2 issues:

- growth in immaterial aspects: that may be considered, given a few caveats
(such as the material basis on which it may rest), potentially infinite

if we have an "exchange economy" and we have infinite inmaterial "products"
with and artificial price, this products will cause an increasing preassure
on material products consumtions.

the owners of inmaterial products will use its to buy stuff (aka Bill gates)

- growth in material aspects: possible as long as it is compatible with the
rate of renewal of the resource

So a culture can learn to limit its material growth in certain areas,
nurture physical relative abundance wherever it is possible, and refocus
core efforts on the immaterial aspects of culture

- growth in population?
