Growthbusters - Hooked on Growth

Growthbusters - Hooked on Growth“Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth” will be shown on Wednesday, May 23, at 7 p.m., at the First Universalist Church in Rockland.

The film explores our modern obsession with urban and economic growth. Individual and public policy decisions today are informed by a powerful, pro­growth cultural bias. How many of us think it is possible to have infinite economic growth in a finite space? And yet, that's exactly what we are assuming we can do. Water shortages, peak oil, species extinction, hunger, and social unrest, are all symptoms of a deeper problem ­ addiction to unending growth in a world that has limits. From Las Vegas to Atlanta, Mexico City to Mumbai, the White House to the Vatican, GrowthBusters takes us on a whirlwind tour of growth mania, and talks back.

“Growthbusters” is presented by the Midcoast Peace and Justice Group.
