In all of the discussion of these authors, no mention is made of the fact that the structure of our money is one of the greatest impediments to creating a no-growth economy. The inclusion of interest in the definition of money creates a situation in which more money is due from the productive sector of the economy to the financial sector over time. Only principal is created in the money creation process. Interest is simply entered as a debt to the monetary authority creating money as a loan.
If we wish to stem growth, we will have to redefine money.
