Sustainable Growth – quid est?

Chief executive of Unilever, Paul Polman is interviewed by The Telegraph ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Among other things he (too) criticises growth, saying that ”it is not just about growth, it is about sustainable growth”. (Interview also mentioned by Andreas Cervenka in Svenska Dagbladet.)

Meanwhile, David Dunn argues on the new economics foundation website that ”sustainable growth is a chimera because it is not possible to de-link resource throughput from growth” – a point worth noting.

Ultimately, one wonders what Paul Polman and others mean, specifically, when they speak of sustainable growth.
