Is "sustainability" even possible under our current monetary paradigm? I submit that it isn't. Our monetary system demands obsolescence!

There is a lot of talk about "Green Business" and "Sustainability", but here is the thing - our whole financial paradigm is based on CONSUMPTION. "Sustainability" is just that - a dynamic rooted in a steady state or sustained equilibrium.

I don't believe we can make much of an environmental impact without seriously examining our monetary system. What do you guys think?
