The End of More

By Peter Zeihan

The world that we’re entering is fundamentally different than where we’ve been. The modern period we live in began with Columbus. It has been one of “more:”–near unending growth (population, capital, consumption)–all accelerated by post-Bretton Woods Order. Modern Monetary Theory is probably not the answer to address a future of shrinking populations, consumption, and growth but I am comforted by the fact that folks are looking into heterodox solutions to address an unprecedented future.

The Age of Constant Growth is over. What comes next?
