Are we living the capitalism big-bang ?

During the last 150 years, global economy have growth significantly, but are we living the end of this model, is the debt crisis the first step of an important period of slump?

It is sustainable an eternal economy growth, or have we learn how to live on slump environment?

If this is the big bang time of capitalism, then something else will take it's place and become the new way. In a finite world, exponential growth is unsustainable and adaptation to the circumstances of the time become neccesitated. In this way, if we reap what we sow and that turns out to be a world where we have less, then there will be no choice but to live in a slump environment. This is when innovation and other technological advances as well as leaders and entrepeneurs will come to the fore and create a new way forward for all of humanity! :D

    Yes!
    We are, very probably!
    Our bio-evolving is too slow to catch up with it.

    The only way to save us is quitting invalid happiness.

    And in fact i belevie in free market. Anyway, i say that it´s not possible to growth indefinably, every year the world growth less than the previous year, and this is becoming a tendency.


    Can we face the end of petrol, the incresing laboral cost in China, the decandence of europe, with the same capitalism model?
  • May 10 2013: Big Bang wouldn't that be the start? Also, the big players are big corporations. Is that really capitalism?

    I recommend this as well:
